Scientists at the University of Bristol are claiming to have created a form of music analysis tool, which calculates the chances of a pop song being a smash. Today's chart music? Entirely predictable? You don't say.
This just blew my mind. Back in 1987 Apple made a video about a future computer that would have a touchscreen with a computerize assistant you could talk to. They were off in their prediction by only 18 days. Wow.
