About Artist Interview.ai

Does your favorite artist ever get nervous? Do they have a favorite color? Does their morning routine optimize productivity?

No problem! Just become a well-connected music journalist and ask them backstage at a concert! Alternatively, if this isn’t an option for you, you can get the next best thing with Artist Interview.ai.

Artist Interview.ai (AI.ai) uses the power of large language models (LLMs) to generate realistic answers to your interview questions.

To do this, AI.ai first conducts a semantic search across the artist's lyrics for your question using something called "embeddings." For example, if you ask about morning routines, this search will return lyrics pertaining to breakfast even if they don't use the word "morning."

Next, these lyric snippets are combined into a prompt that instructs GPT-3.5-turbo to role play as the artist and answer your question based on the provided lyric snippets.

Even though the result isn’t actually written by the artist, it taps into the wisdom embedded within their lyrics, and so in a very real sense it “comes from them.” Of course, the answers provided should be taken as a form of simulated entertainment and not as the actual statements of the artists represented.

This site was created by Tom Lehman using the Open AI API, Ruby on Rails, Heroku, and Supabase. The embeddings-based approach was inspired by Paul Graham GPT The artist images were generated by Midjourney.
