Peter Gabriel on AI: “I don’t think my job or anyone’s job is safe”

by Scott Ng,, March 20, 2023

"This is something that's going have way more impact than the Industrial Revolution"

In a discussion with Yahoo! Music about his tech company Reverberation, Gabriel discussed the need to anticipate what AI technology could be capable of. “I’m probably just as scared [of AI] as everybody else, but I like to jump in the river rather than talk about it. … I do think about it quite a lot, and I think not enough people are thinking about it,” he said.

Gabriel then turned to the topic of whether music generated by AI could ever have the emotional effect of songs written by human artists. “Most people argue no; I would say they just need better algorithms,” Gabriel said, adding that there will probably be algorithms for human spirit one day.

Peter Gabriel released new music and talks about the creative process he went through, writing and recording his new album "Playing For Time".
