Robots playing a Orchestra.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orchestra

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_reality

Will this be a impossible feat to be achieved
in the 21st century?

Robots playing a Orchestra.

Is this a example of Artificial Intelligence,
Machine Learning, Robotics & Virtual Reality?

To Start with, a Robot playing a Piano, Guitar, Violin etc
Musical instrument on a song tune.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

This is easy, all you have to do is program the movements, no AI required at all.
If you wanted them to respond to a conductor, you might need a bit more code, but still not that hard.

Thanks.

Do you feel the Robots will play a Orchestra?

It has more or less been done already. People don't want to go and sit listening to robots play for 2 hours, it's boring.

That's why in the future you'll be able to send a bot to listen to an orchestra. Then you can stay home and watch a movie.

Thanks.

If there are more than one Conductor in the Orchestra then they will be replaced by two Robots.

Much of the work of a conductor occurs during rehearsals. Some instrumentalists might not be too pleased to be told by a robot during a rehearsal "That sounds like a bum note you was playing there".

Why not? We're told by algorithms that we can't get a loan or our interest rate will be high because of our credit score. Employers do automated background checks. You can't get your special situation handled by a decent human being at a bureaucracy because "We're following policy." In every case you have algorithms ruling your life.

The fact is we are already ruled by algorithms. "AI" is a red herring. When you call for customer support you get a long wait time and an automated response, or a short wait time and a senior-level, competent human, based on how valuable you are to a company.

We are ALREADY ruled by algorithms. And nobody seems to care. We just meekly accept it.

Firstly, "more than one" does not mean 2, so I disagree.
Secondly, assuming the conductors are signalling to human musicians, you would have one mechanism controlling the required number of limbs to direct the different parts of the orchestra. You'd do this so the conductors didn't need to also signal each other to decide on an overall conducting strategy. So, no, I disagree.
If the conductors are directing mechanical musicians, you'd just send the instructions over cables or WiFi and not bother with any stick-waving, so I disagree.

If the audience robot(s) didn't see any stick-waving, how would they know any conducting was occurring?
