The majority of Americans have a subscription to one of the many music streaming services, whether it be Apple Music, Spotify, or Soundcloud, but what many people are not aware of is the presence of AI in one’s listening experience. Machine learning technology has provided these platforms with capabilities such as; creating smooth transitions between songs, adjusting sound volumes, and eliminating dead air. This can especially be seen if one were to listen to a song from the 70s and then follow it up with a current chart-topper. This is because of the vast differences in audio levels between past decades and the present, and AI is hoping to make this less noticeable. The next time you are streaming music, be sure to listen for the subtle changes in sound.
