An artificial whistle from La Gomera – EFE News

Maspalomas (Gran Canaria) (EFE).- Can artificial intelligence generate something as characteristic and unique as the whistle of La Gomera? Two Canarian musicians have developed different programs that have processed and provided sounds of whistles, bells and other typical Canarian “melodies” to create the tune that sets the stage for the OECD Ministerial Conference on Digital Transformation being held these days in Maspalomas (Gran Canaria). ).

Thus, the hundreds of participants from delegations and companies from the 38 countries that make up the OECD were able to listen to an artificially generated whistle from La Gomera, as explained by the First Vice-President of the Spanish Government, Nadia Calviño, during her word.

La Gomera whistle generated by artificial intelligence for the OECD Ministerial Conference on the Digital Economy.

The Gomero whistle was declared by UNESCO in 2009 as Intangible Heritage of Humanity and it is the first time that it has been generated using artificial intelligence software.

“Musicians create and feed different software that process and bring coherence to the piece. Artists use technology and artificial intelligence to create environments, recreate sound ecosystems that have not been reproduced until now and, above all, to make coherent the coexistence between a bell or a whistle with a processor or a base of ‘samplers’ and that it sounds in levels and in harmony. “, detailed to EFE sources from the Ministry of Economy and Digital Transformation, organizers of the event.

It is, they added, a sample of the emerging technologies that are being discussed these days at the multilateral summit in which digital transformation and data processing are the main protagonists. EFE
