Artificial Intelligence: Will Machines Replace Human Musicians?

A3E dares to ask the question: Who will be leading the band in 2025? There are so many reasons to think that music may be so abstract, that only the human mind can master its nuance as a language. At the same time, FaceBook recently shut down their two AI machines who had developed their own language, and Google's DeepMind program has an AI that can contemplate the future. Musical machines are emerging on the horizon.
