ABOUT

Shimon, the robotic marimba player, can listen to, understand, collaborate with, and surprise his human counterparts. Along with a few other robotic musicians and musical cyborgs developed by Georgia Tech’s Robotic Musicianship group, Shimon uses artificial intelligence and creativity algorithms to push musical experiences and outcomes to uncharted domains.

The Robotic Musicianship Group at Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology aims to facilitate meaningful musical interactions between humans and machines, leading to novel and creative musical experiences and outcomes. We believe that real-time collaboration between human and robotic players can capitalize on the combination of their unique strengths to produce new and compelling music.
