Robots Threaten Musician's Jobs

Those blackguards at the Georgia Tech have programmed robots to jam to music:

Watch a human musician and his robots improvise together
The Robotic Musicianship Group at Georgia Tech has been working on Shimon, a musical robot that can improvise melodic accompaniment, for about six years now. And for three years, they've added Shimi — a small, smartphone-connected bot that can respond to music with dance and sound — to the mix.

Shockingly. the music sounds a lot like techno, so I guess good musicians are safe for a few more years.
