Meet Ai-Da, the first humanoid robot to open its art gallery – NeeWS


Ai-Da was designed and built by Engineered Arts, a Cornish-based robotic company, and engineers from the University of Oxford and the University of Leeds. The humanoid robot was created using Mesmer technology, the same technology that was used to build the robots for WestWorld, and also contributed to the construction … (see here).

Ai-Da is a flesh and blood artist. Her drawings delight with quality. Maybe they are far from those performed by human artists, but in the end we are talking about a robot equipped with artificial intelligence. The role of the humanoid is to interest people in art and through it drawing their attention to the current social problems of humanity.

How does a robot create images? Well, the humanoid has built-in cameras that observe the surroundings. The image goes to the artificial intelligence system, where it is analyzed, and then the machine recreates the view on the canvas with a robotic hand. You can see the entire process on the footage.

An exhibition of Ai-Da works will be held in May this year at the Design Museum in London. The first self-portraits of the robot and a font designed by him will appear there. “We live in a self-portrait culture, but pass our data on to tech giants who use it to predict our behavior. Thanks to technology, we externalize our own decisions”Said Lucy Seal, art curator at Design Museum. Admittedly, there is something to it.
