Yamaha brings pianist Glenn Gould back to life as an AI.

Glenn Herbert Gould was a Canadian pianist who became one of the best-known and most-celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. He was renowned as an interpreter of the keyboard works of Johann Sebastian Bach.

This AI is able to play in the unique style of Glenn Gould as well as interact live with human musicians. Yamaha and Dentsu Inc. Tokyo first trained the AI by analyzing Gould’s past recordings and then crafted by input from expert musicians who are true Gould enthusiasts.
