Can computers create art?

AlgorRitmo is an experiment on music creation by a hybrid human-artificial intelligence

Computers, long believed to be good only at crunching numbers, are making fast strides towards solving complex cognitive challenges such as driving cars, maintaining a conversation, and even being better-than-humans at playing video games as well as once-considered-too-difficult board games like Go.

As people apply these new advances to content creation (text, images, and music) they face not only the usual technical challenges, but also the fact that the quality of music, and art in general, is very subjective: the same piece can loose popularity in a very short time, while others need to be remade with current styles to appeal to younger audiences.
