But I think this just proves that there's really no comparing the jazz musicianship of robots to humans, and our future overlords will know it.

    Despite what you might think, Sundance Film Festival doesn't just involve a bunch of indie films you'll probably never see and a ton of big-name stars in parkas (though both of those things are quite prevalent in Park City this week).
