Robot Performs DJ Set Alongside DJ Yoda

“YuMi” and DJ Yoda

Robots are making their way into just about every industry — including the DJ world.

An example of this is a robot named “YuMi,” which recently performed alongside DJ Yoda at the unveiling of Ford Motor Company’s next-generation Fiesta.

YuMi was specifically programmed to perform the one-off set and was mentored by Yoda, who spent two weeks on the project.

“I’ve collaborated before with a classical orchestra a beatboxer and a brass band but teaching a robot to DJ has been crazy. There were times when I didn’t know if it was going to work or not,” Yoda said. “The biggest challenge was trying to teach rhythm to robot coders. There were a lot of calculators.”

YuMi is a collaborative robot, also known as a co-bot, and works closely with workers on the assembly line.
