I train computer programs called neural networks, which look at datasets of human things and try to copy them. They’re used for all sorts of important real-life applications, running Facebook’s facial recognition and Google’s language translation, among many, many other things.

I am running the same sort of algorithm, just sliiightly scaled down in strength and sophistication. Thanks to blog reader Cole Caron, I had a list of 1310 musical genres and their definitions, extracted from Wikipedia.

The neural network has read these definitions, and now knows All About music genres. Please read these definitions, so that this superior artificial intelligence may educate you.
