How can we relate quantum computing, robotics, and music? This is a position paper where we try to connect these fields. We discuss one main question regarding computational creativity and we imagine an experimental setup to test our hypothesis. Artificial intelligence and autonomous machines can accomplish simple creative tasks such as reorganizing given material. Because creativity is a human (and not only) resource to survive, we wonder if also artificial agents, such as robots, might develop creativity at a higher level to ensure self-survival. Then, we design an experimental setup with three robots, playing and dancing. If music and movement flow is regular (with the beat difference below a certain threshold), the voltage given to robots is constant. Otherwise, if there are inconsistencies, it drops, activating robots’ alert signal sensors, and triggering new musical activity. We use the paradigm of quantum computing to formalize our claims. This test might be performed in situ in a robotic lab.

Abstract

How can we relate quantum computing, robotics, and music? This is a position paper where we try to connect these fields. We discuss one main question regarding computational creativity and we imagine an experimental setup to test our hypothesis. Artificial intelligence and autonomous machines can accomplish simple creative tasks such as reorganizing given material. Because creativity is a human (and not only) resource to survive, we wonder if also artificial agents, such as robots, might develop creativity at a higher level to ensure self-survival. Then, we design an experimental setup with three robots, playing and dancing. If music and movement flow is regular (with the beat difference below a certain threshold), the voltage given to robots is constant. Otherwise, if there are inconsistencies, it drops, activating robots’ alert signal sensors, and triggering new musical activity. We use the paradigm of quantum computing to formalize our claims. This test might be performed in situ in a robotic lab.
