Watch This Japanese Dance Troupe Collaborate with AI on Stage

AI has shown off a broad repertoire of creative talents in recent years — composing music, writing stories, crafting meme captions. Now, the stage is set for AI models to take on a new venture in the performing arts — by stepping onto the dance floor. In a Japanese production titled discrete figures, an AI dancer was projected on stage, joining a live dancer for a duet. The show also presented a partly trained neural network that used recordings of audience members dancing as input data.
