Jazz and Robots

Now, have you ever wondered about imagination. That very thing that makes us better than automatons is that we can imagine and create solutions out of nowhere.

In the arts this is called improvisation, the art of one being able to create something out of thin air, just by following the flow of the situation.

Georgia Tech Center for music technology proves us that robots are no longer estranged with self creation, and gives us Shimon, a robot which can follow the lead in some music piece as shown in the video.

Can you imagine the implications of this.
