more than machines

Sep 26, 2023

I recently stumbled upon the new album by Bush (yes, that Bush from long ago). Apparently they are still making music and came out with a pretty spectacular new album, The Art of Survival.

When I got to the track, “More Than Machines” I couldn’t help but consider where we are right now AI and the explosive influence it is having on so many industries. It is so pervasive people are being impacted by it whether they realize it or not.

While it is easy to be fearful of the implications on our society and industry, I’m reminded that at the end of the day it is still just a machine (albeit a different category of machine) and that humans are still at the heart of it. Humans are the ones driving it forward. In order to celebrate its beauty I had AI create me a playlist inspired by Bush and that celebrates the human spirit. It came up with some pretty great tracks, but not to be outdone I added a few of my own. Enjoy.
