So Siri can be used to tell the time, the weather, compose and send messages, hand out directions and recommendations, so why shouldn’t it be able to play the piano, right? Well that’s what the guys down at Yamaha have managed to do, which is to get Siri to “play” the piano.

On the show floor, Yamaha had an iPhone app called “infosound” […]
