Tone-deaf robots teach each other to sing, passionately butcher a Happy Birthday rendition

da Engadget di Paul Miller

After what must’ve been a few painful minutes of rehearsal, a few
robots built by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music
Research have preformed what we assume to be their first and last paid
gig: a rendition of Happy Birthday to celebrate the 100th of the
Science Museum in the UK. What’s interesting about these bots —
outside of their horrible ear for music and laughable singing voices is
the fact that they’ve actually been programmed to communicate and teach
each other to sing through the process of singing to each other. Videos
of both painful acts are after the break, and while we wouldn’t call it
art, we shouldn’t throw stones: we’ve been in plenty of garage bands
that sounded quite a bit worse.
