Musicians Play Music Better Than Computers
from the in-case-you-didn't-know-that dept
We all know that computers can beat humans at chess these days, but they're apparently still falling short of humans in some areas -- such as music. This is unlikely to surprise many people, but a study of how people's brains reacted to music that was played by human musicians vs. computers found that our brains respond more to the music from musicians. Basically, it sounds like our brains can detect the fact that humans play music with more feeling, and we respond accordingly. So now who's going to program computer musicians to understand the meaning of "Once more... with feeling!"
