Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL 3D renders, because case specs.

If you like phone renders based off of case manufacturer specs, this video is for you. Me, while I love the hypebeast, I like my information and leaks a little more concrete. Maybe I'm getting old?

As an occasional black-and-white keyboard hacker, I’m always amazed at not only the manual dexterity of the body this kind of performance demonstrates but also the sheer processing and motor neuron sequencing power of the brain it demonstrates.

I mean if you thought remembering a few dozen digits of Pi is hard, imagine memorizing 6531 (yeah someone counted them) notes of this piece, plus their pitch, duration, and intonation. Then try to recall them at an alarming rate that would put any auctioneer to shame.

Okay, there’s some repetition in sequences - it would be interesting to estimate the true amount of distinct things that must be memorized - I guess the minimum would be the number of bytes it can be compressed too with say run-length encoding.

In addition, there is the timing - for this 6'47" rendition that’s over 16 notes per second with most likely precision in timing that is approaching milliseconds and definitely tens of milliseconds.

And this isn’t even the most challenging piano piece ever, definitely not the longest, and she most likely knows dozens by memory too. The brain, it’s an amazing thing.

Now if I said I had a computer that could do this - even a robot, you would probably not be that amazed. I'm guessing there are videos of piano playing robots out there, but add to it a wet brain that has the ability to actually learn a piece, add personal intonation, and then get up and have dinner and a drink at the bar after... and it's a whole different ball game. However, is it really that far off? Or are we already at the point of AI having mastered the role of concert pianist and we don't even know it yet?
