dc.description In the fall of 1997, Indiana University cognitive scientist Douglas Hofstadter, in his role as Visiting Professor at Stanford University’s Center for Computer-Aided Research in the Humanities (CCARH), organized a series of five public symposia centered on the burning question “Are Computers Approaching Human-Level Creativity?” This fourth symposium was about a particular computer program -- David Cope’s “EMI” (later renamed as “Emmy”) -- as a composer of music in the style of various classical composers. On the second day, a two-hour concert took place in which compositions written by EMI and compositions written by famous human composers were performed without identification, and the audience was asked to vote for which pieces they thought were human-composed and which were computer-composed. Among the speakers in that symposium were David Cope himself and noted philosopher Dan Dennett. To view part 1 click on the link below. en
