Below are the lyrics:
“Lots to decorate the room.
The Christmas tree is filled with flowers.
I swear it is Christmas Eve.
I hope that is what you say.
The best Christmas present in the world is a blessing.
I’ve always been there for the rest of our lives.
A hundred and a half hour ago.
I’m glad to meet you.
I can hear the music coming from the hall.
A fairy tale.
A Christmas tree.
There are lots and lots and lots of flowers.”

From there, the researchers then trained it to analyze images and their captions in order to link specific words with visual patterns and objects. Thus this Christmas song was born once it analyzed the image provided above.
While the song doesn’t exactly match the same standards we might have of Christmas tunes, the feat is still remarkable in and of itself. The fact that it was able to analyze the image, know what the objects were, and then generate a melody based on its analysis is truly incredible. And the thing is, it’s only getting started. Once its deep learning protocols become more complex, the more human-like its song making skills will become. In 10 years time, we might be listening to Christmas tunes that’ll be impossible to determine whether a human created it or an artificial intelligence. Though, by then, will it even matter? Happy holiday!
