生物进化论创作动听音乐?

美国微软全国广播公司报道,音乐的创作如同生物进化,适者生存规则同样适用。近日,英国科学家创建了达尔文音乐引擎,它包含一些随机生成的短声音。6931名参与者试听了这些音乐,并对它们的美感进行评分。在自然选择下,经过约2500代后,这些声音从噪音变成了吸引人的音乐。

It has also given us the splendours of human culture. This may seem like a bold claim, but it is self-evidently true. People copy cultural artifacts – words, songs, images, ideas – all the time from other people. Copying is imperfect: there is "mutation". Some cultural mutants do better than others: most die but some are immensely successful; they catch on; they become hits. This process, repeated for fifty thousand years, has given us all that we make, say and do; it is the process of "cultural evolution".
