TikTok continues to make music with artificial intelligence and hire a machine learning specialist – Music Business Worldwide

AI-powered music industry applications are increasingly active.

In May, music-making platform Splice, said to be valued at about $500 million, launched an AI-powered music app called CoSo, which uses what Splice calls “Complementary Sounds” AI technology to create music “in milliseconds”.

Meanwhile, a social music industry platform that recently raised $65 million has an AI-powered app called SongStarter that claims it can “create royalty-free music in seconds.”

Can Tik Tok and Parents ByteDance [108 articles]href=”https://www.musicbusinessworldwide.com/companies/bytedance/”> Is ByteDance one of the next major players in the sector?

In July 2019, ByteDance acquired Jukedeck, a UK-based music startup that specializes in creating royalty-free music for user-generated videos online.

This year, the company appears to be doubling down on its ambitions in making AI-powered music.

In May, ByteDance launched Mawf, a machine learning-based music-making app that analyzes incoming audio signals and then “replays” those signals using what it says are machine learning models of musical instruments.

In addition, according to a report from a news site Tech Planet, ByteDance also launched a music creation app in China called “Sponge Band”.

according to Tech PlanetThis recording and music editing app also features artificial intelligence tools, and notes that it is “particularly useful for users who want to further enhance sound effects and background music for short videos.”

Now, according to a number of job postings spotted by MBW, TikTok and parent company ByteDance are recruiting for a number of highly skilled professionals in machine learning and AI music creation in both the US and China.

Here are some of these roles:

Research Scientist in the Music Industry (SAMI)

According to the job description for this role, which is based in Mountain View, California, this person will “conduct advanced research and development in music creation tools to reduce the barrier to creating music for everyone.”

They will also be asked to “transfer advanced technologies into TikTok products” and “explore new products with music intelligence technology at its core.”

Elsewhere in the job posting, TikTok says that “this team’s mission is to enable content interaction and creation using speech/audio/music related technologies.”

The ad continues: “We focus on cutting-edge research and development in speech, voice and music processing. We are looking for the best talent to work on music creation tools, integrating them into various TikTok products and ultimately delighting our global user base!”


Research engineer in musical instrument learning

According to the announcement, the person, who will be based in Seattle, will conduct “advanced research and development in music information retrieval, music creation, music/audio signal processing, interactive music and related areas.”

Candidates will need either a master’s or doctoral degree in computer science, mathematics, engineering, or a related field.

They are also expected to have experience in one or more areas of “musical intelligence” and deep learning, including but not limited to:

  • Music information recovery
  • Composing and creating music using artificial intelligence
  • Digital Signal Processing for Music and Audio – Interactive Music

Multimedia Machine Learning Research Scientist (Sammy)

According to TikTok, this role in Seattle will include “advanced research and development in multimodal machine learning models (sound, vision, music and text)”.

TikTok says that this person will need “experience in multimodal machine learning across the domains of speech, voice, computer vision, natural language processing (NLP) and music information retrieval.”

The ad states, “The mission of the Voice and Speech Music Team is to enable content interaction and creation using technologies related to speech and sound.”

“We’re focused[ed] In cutting-edge research and development in areas such as speech, voice, music processing, natural language understanding, and multi-media deep learning, we are looking for the best talent to work on these exciting technologies, integrate them into various TikTok products, and ultimately bring delight to our user base!”


Artificial intelligence audio software engineer

According to the announcement (translated), this Beijing-based engineer will be responsible for “research, development and business support for Bytedance audio content creation and consumption business scenarios.”

This person will need “rich experience in digital signal processing and artificial intelligence/deep learning system development.”

This experience should also be in the areas of “3D spatial audio rendering, audio preprocessing such as noise/echo reduction/echo removal, voice imprinting/awakening, acoustic event detection, speech recognition, and natural language”.Music business around the world
