The Rundown: Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr just released a new Beatles single featuring AI-generated John Lennon, completed using machine learning to isolate individual tracks from an unreleased demo.
"Now and Then" stalled in the 1990s because analog tape technology couldn't separate Lennon's blended piano and vocals.
New AI audio processing extracted Lennon's parts to allow McCartney and Starr to overdub new bass, drums, guitar, and strings.
The result features all four members' performances, with McCartney calling it ‘likely’ the final new collaboration featuring the full band.
The relevance: While many may be uneasy with AI’s creep into the music industry, the ability to unlock new collaborations and revive old material is quite the feat. Listen to The Beatle’s new single ‘Now and Then’ here.
TOGETHER WITH MASTERWORKS
The Rundown: When incredibly valuable assets come up for sale, it's typically the wealthiest people who end up taking home an amazing investment. But not always…
Masterworks is taking on the billionaires at their own game, buying up and fractionalizing s prized blue-chip artworks for its investors. When Masterworks sells a painting – like the 16 it's already sold – investors reap their portion of the profits.
Investing involves risk and past performance is not indicative of future returns. See important Reg A disclosures and aggregate advisory performance masterworks.com/cd
The Rundown: Researchers used an AI tool to analyze scans and grade the severity of a rare abdominal cancer, sarcoma, providing significantly more accurate diagnostic results than current biopsy methods.
The algorithm detected subtle imaging patterns invisible to radiologists to assess cancer aggressiveness.
The tool graded 89 patients' sarcomas from scans with a whopping 82% accuracy— while standard biopsy analysis came in at just 44%.
Researchers anticipate improved diagnosis, risk stratification, and personalized treatment recommendations.
Identifying hard-to-see indicators undetectable to the human eye highlights AI's potential for early cancer detection.
Our thoughts: This is another incredible example of a cancer-related AI breakthrough of the many we’ve seen over this past year. It’s clear that the tech is revolutionizing the detection and treatment of one of the world’s leading causes of death.
