Detroit Symphony Conductron

In a landmark event for all robot-kind, the Detroit symphony orchestra will be conducted by a soulless, artificial man-bot, powered in part by the dreams of various foppish, 17th century classical composers.  This will be the first time in history that a robot will tell people what to do, as opposed to the other way around (although technically, it’s also programmed by people).  Kind of an empty gesture to me, but to the Japanese, probably one so full of metaphorical weight and majesty that I refuse to get into right now.
