Cool Video: An Unexpected Use of AI and IoT to Enjoy Music

Back to the heydays of Youtube, when it was all about amateur videos. Here, with a modern twist: A guy (me) dancing while listening to music produced by the Alexa show. You can chose the music you want, skip songs you don't like, increase volume, and so on: Just ask the Alexa robot.

This is an untouched, raw video - no rehearsal of anything. An example of what IoT (Internet of Things) is.…

Think about two armies at war against each other, with each soldier (a robot) collaborating with his team to fight the enemy (consisting of robots as well.) You could make a movie out of it!

A more peaceful example of applications is driver-less cars. These cars could cooperate together to optimize everyone's commute, unlike human…
