Happy Holiday! A.I. Writes and Sings Christmas Song
B. J. Murphy   Dec 12, 2016   Serious Wonder  

It’s finally the last month of the year and you know what that means – the holiday flood known as Christmas. Celebrated by many, it’s a time of the year where presents are exchanged and songs are sung. Only this year one of those songs won’t be sung (let alone written) by a human being. Nope, this time an artificial intelligence is giving it a go!

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.”
