Earlier this month, the Italian city of Pisa held the First International Festival of Robotics.
During the festival, a robot did something incredible at Pisa's Verdi Theater. It lifted a baton and conducted the Lucca Philharmonic orchestra. The orchestra featured the famous Italian singer Andrea Bocelli.
The robot is named YuMi – from the phrase "You and me." It learned all of the movements necessary from Andrea Colombini, the orchestra's usual conductor. Colombini held the robot's arms while the orchestra practiced so that the computer could memorize the correct movements.
We basically had to find time to understand his movements. When we found the way, everything was pretty easy, said Colombini.
Colombini added that the robot's technicians were very good. They made everything perfect, especially in the length and the speed of the gesture movement of the body, which is very important, he said.
YuMi is not able to act in unexpected ways. He would have been unable to answer a sudden change in tempo by the musicians.
YuMi successfully conducted three of the 18 musical works performed that night, including one famous song from Verdi's opera Rigoletto.

Memorize every word of it.
It’s incredible that he survived the fall.

节日期间，一个机器人在比萨的威尔第剧院(Verdi Theater)做出了非凡之举——它用指挥棒指挥卢卡爱乐管弦乐团进行演奏 。该乐团有知名意大利歌手安德烈 波伽利 。
这个机器人名叫YuMi——来源于短语“你和我” 。YuMi从安德烈 波伽利身上学习了所有必要的动作，后者是该乐团平时的指挥家 。乐团演奏的时候，波伽利会控制着机器人的手臂，这样电脑就能记住正确的动作 。
我们还是需要一些时间来理解它的动作 。波伽利表示，但一旦我们找到了诀窍，一切都变得如此容易 。
波伽利补充道，建造这个机器人的技术人员非常棒 。每个环节都如此完美，尤其是身体做各种姿势的长度和速度，这一点很重要，波伽利如是说道 。
不过，YuMi只能按套路出牌 。如果音乐家的节奏突然变化，那么YuMi是无法做出响应的 。
