Wow, according to the website, this is like the one job that isn't in any danger of being overtaken by AI.

Like any other art form, AI can provide infinite samples for dancers and artists to choose from.

Since certain computers can already imitate human creativity, as seen by things like "The Day A Computer Writes A Novel," a Japanese novel written by an AI which entered a writing contest and passed the first round of screening. If AIs were given a humanoid shape which could mimic human movement and were created with the same levels of creativity, they could theoretically choreograph using known existing dance movements.

However, this is unlikely mostly based on the fact that it would be strange for someone to think of and actively pursue the creation of an AI whose sole purpose is to take over the job of a choreographer.

It's really unlikely for this job to be replaced by robots. Most important in choreography is that it needs sense to create story or just doesn't look stupid. We'd need an AI that can be creative, is ready to use creates some moves on purpose, knows what move will fit in a fraction of music and can communicate with dancers.

Music is very scientific. AI can read BPM and adapt types of choreographies towards the demographics and preferences of the audience by the analysis of their facial expressions and attention spam of their visuals.
Choreographers will need to create more sequences to be analyzed by the AI software and hardware but the choreographies can be developed in a better way by AI.

I think there is a tiny chance that robots could help with performances. Yet, choreography can be a mostly creative thing for any performance.
