Cleaning up after robots
Breakthrough Funding comes across innovation stories every day. The vast majority relate to new products or services; often they are ideas that exploit the latest technologies and trends or provide an answer to a problem that is so simple that it makes you wonder how it could have been overlooked for so long. We know that what an organisation creates and delivers can bring enormous value, but we should never ignore the fact that how a business operates can be equally impactful.

So, to many, learning that a machine can create music - good music that to the untrained ear has nothing artificial about it - will no doubt seem like something out of a science fiction story. But that is exactly what tech startup called Jukedeck has done, as Breakthrough magazine found out.
