A Real-Time Genetic Algorithm in Human-Robot Musical Improvisation

  title={A Real-Time Genetic Algorithm in Human-Robot Musical Improvisation},
  author={Gil Weinberg and Mark Godfrey and Alastair R. Rae and John Rhoads},
The paper describes an interactive musical system that utilizes a genetic algorithm in an effort to create inspiring collaborations between human musicians and an improvisatory robotic xylophone player.
