There Is Now An Artificial Intelligence Kanye West

Kanye West is back, sort of. Today we get our first look at a rather unique creation from a West Virginia teenager. 17-year-old high school student Robbie Barrat created an A.I. version of Kanye West following a challenge from other members of his school’s programming club. Speaking about his creation, Robbie spoke with Quartz and stated: “All of the sudden I had a week to make a neural network that could rap.”

The AI rapper takes its cues from 6,000 different Kanye West lines and can even create its own bars and flows like a tradition rapper would. Barrat stated, “Originally it just rearranged existing rap lyrics, but now it can actually write word-by-word.” Check out the video below for a closer look and stay tuned for much more.
