Duet with an AI

Google Creative Labs just released a bot that will play piano with you.

I had fun playing around with it. It’s clear that it adjusts to how you are playing, as it seems to pick notes around the same octave that I play. It seems the best way to get it to play something that sounds good is to play a short melody of 4–6 notes and then the bot picks it up and continues with a different melody that sounds similar but is slightly different.

I really love things like this. I think AI will become a more and more important creative tool.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
