Emily Howell

Okay, take a listen to this music:

Pretty, right? So who do you think wrote this music? Okay, stupid question. It's obviously someone named Emily Howell. So who do you think Emily is? A child prodigy? A grand master in the works?

Nope. She's a robot.

According to this article, "Emily" was fed the works of the great masters, analyzed them, and then was told to start producing music of her own. The video above is one such result.

Ummmmmm . . . I'm not sure what to make of this. But I, for one, welcome our coming robot overlords with terrified humility.
