The Machine's Got Rhythm: Science News Online, April 21, 2007
This is simply amazing: a computer that can learn how to listen to music. Read the full article for a mind-blowing experience. People are teaching computers how to transcribe performances in real-time. They are creating programs to allow performers to practice with the computer, and the computer will follow the player, even anticipating where the next entrance should come in. I would love to experiment with one of these programs. What fun!
