Berklee College of Music offers free courses on Coursera. Including Jazz Improvisation which could constitute a "hack" for quick learning of scales and progressions. Regardless of how "intelligent" the music interface is, I can't see any way out of hours of daily directed practice for mastery.
The year 2019 will mark the 60th anniversary of the Annus miraculus in jazz history. Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, John Coltranes' Giant Steps, Dave Brubeck's Time Out, Bill Evans' Portrait in Jazz, etc. A great time to get back into jazz and swing for piano. And even better considering we now live in an age where online "jamming" is possible with a decentralized band ;)
