SAN FRANCISCO — It was a happy day for the Silicon Valley venture capitalist Vinod Khosla : He lost his battle. On Monday, the United States Supreme Court refused to hear Mr. Khosla ’s appeal to overturn a ruling that the beach access path cutting through a coastal village he owns near Half Moon

We won't be listening to music in a decade according to Vinod Khosla© Mark Makela/Corbis Establishing a tech start up is a high risk, high rewards game, but the reality is only one in 20 succeed. Depending on who you ask, the advantage of technology based on artificial or machine intelligence could be a topsy-turvy funhouse mirror world – even in some very fundamental ways.

"I actually think 10 years from now, you won't be listening to music," is a thing venture capitalist Vinod Khosla said on stage today during a fireside chat at Creative Destruction Lab's second annual Super Session event.

Instead, he believes we'll be listening to custom song equivalents that are automatically designed specifically for each individual, and tailored to their brain, their listening preferences and their particular needs.

Is streaming music worse for the environment than buying CDs and records?

Is streaming music worse for the environment than buying CDs and records? In the history of recorded music, things started off pretty green. From the early-to-mid 20th century, records were made partly from shellac, the resin secreted onto trees by the female lac bug, found in the forests of India and Thailand. 

It sounds simple. For nearly a decade , the venture capitalist Vinod Khosla has been fighting in court to keep the public off a piece of beach that abuts his property on the Pacific coast. What could be more familiar than another case of rich Californian versus the oceangoing citizenry?

Court decision is blow to Vinod Khosla and other wealthy landowners seeking to buy renowned beaches, making public land private.

Khosla noted that AI-created music is already making big strides – and it's true that it's come a long way in the past couple of years, as noted recently by journalist Stuart Dredge writing on Medium.

Vinod Khosla . Mario Anzuoni / REUTERS. I believe a board in a small startup company should never vote on anything," Khosla argues. In 30 years of being on boards, he asserts that he's never once voted against a founder, except in the case of hiring or firing a CEO.

As Dredge points out, one recent trend is the rise of mood or activity based playlists on Spotify and channels on YouTube. There are plenty of these types of things where the artist, album and song name are not at all important, or even really surfaced. Not to mention that there's a big financial incentive for an entity like Spotify to prefer machine-made alternatives, since it could help alleviate or eliminate the licensing costs that severely limit their ability to make margin on their primary business of serving up music to customers.

AI-generated chart toppers and general mood music is one thing, but a custom soundtrack specific to every individual is another. It definitely sidesteps the question of what happens to the communal aspect of music when everyone's music-replacing auditory experience is unique to the person. Guess we'll find out in ten years.
