They might be coming for factory employees, day traders, as well as reporters, however robotics aren’t near taking on starving artists. At the School for Poetic Computation, they’re aiming to repair that.”>
By now, youve seen the real-life scary stories of robotics gone bad. Perhaps not the apocryphal ones from, spoken, a Michael Bay motion picture, where an individual thats likewise a vehicle consumes an entire town. We rather get uninteresting, dull, mercilessly amusing failure.

Specifically, go into Piano Die Hard.

It is so incredibly foolish, and its the biggest exhibition in overall floorspace by a mile at alt-AI, an art program in the West Village of Manhattan that was produced to check out expert system through the lens of creative practice. Hence Piano Die Hard.
