I don’t know how successful AI could be. There is an awful lot of context to consider, especially with string bowings.
I understand the excitement that some folks have about an iPad version of Dorico. I have no intention of using Apple technology. Moreover, I would have hoped that a pad-based product would be more like StaffPad, allowing for drawing bowings and fingerings quickly with a stylus. With such a tool, I could sit down with the Concertmaster and enter the bowings very quickly.
Rather than AI, I wonder if there might be merit to the idea of creating a service clearinghouse where people could upload their Dorico scores and contract with experts to do things like string bowings. Perhaps there could be all sorts of special expertise that could be brought to bear on compositions.
For example, maybe I’d like to have a 32-bar Sax soli section voiced like Supersax. Or maybe somebody is particularly good at creating drumset parts. I always find that to be a pain. I’d pay good money for some of these things.
I have contracted with people in past to write piano parts like Frank Mantooth would have played them, for example. A clearinghouse to find this expertise would be cool.
