When computers learned to sing

We’re quite used to playing music on our laptops and cell phones these days, but back in 1961, it was quite an event when for the first time a computer was programmed to sing a song. The song was the refrain of “A Bicycle Built For Two”, better known as “Daisy, Daisy”.

This event was later alluded to in Stanley Kubrick’s movie “2001 A Space Odyssey”.

As much as this was a great achievement at the time, I am confident that our singing will sound better!
