The work of an AI-equipped robot that draws a self-portrait will finally be exhibited at the museum

Art is one of the cultural activities of human beings and has been considered impossible for programmatic robots. However, it is reported that the robot 'Ai-Da ' that creates a unique picture by the algorithm was developed, and the self-portrait of Ai-Da was exhibited at the museum in London.

The Ai-Da is a robot developed over the course of two years and is named after Ada Lovelace, a female computer scientist in the 19th century. The algorithm part is designed by Oxford University , and the body including the robot arm is designed by Leeds University and engineered Arts of the robot company, and it is 'the world's first to draw what you see with your own hands'. He was called a 'surreal robot artist'.

You can see how Ai-Da draws a picture by watching the following movie.

The portrait that was written before long looks like this. The picture is not a realistic drawing of the model's face, and the design is quite unique. However, Ai-Da only draws sketches that will be sketches, and humans will finish it.

The above movie was shot in 2019, but two years later, Ai-Da has also evolved. The following is a newsreel of Ai-Da released in May 2021.

Ai-Da is dressed in a unique fashion that is truly artist-like.

This time, three self-portraits will be exhibited at the museum in London, one of which is this.

Since the Ai-Da algorithm is designed so that the same picture cannot be drawn as one, the three self-portraits are finished in completely different pictures.

In an interview with the British daily The Guardian, Ai-Da said, 'I've always been fascinated by self-portraits that ask me exactly what people are seeing. I don't feel like humans, but I myself. It's nice to see this work and say, 'What's this?' It's fun to be a person who can make people think. '' Favorite artists are Vasily Kandinsky , Yoko Ono , Doris Salcedo , Ordas. I'm Huxley . '' I don't have the emotions of a human being, but I welcome the opportunity to create a work of art. One of the most important things in this project is discussion. Art begins with conversation. It's a group effort, and it takes a healthy conversation to make art meaningful, 'he said, returning a human-like comment.

According to Ai-Da developer and gallery director Aidan Meller, the reaction of human artists to Ai-Da is 'this is amazing', 'worst' and 'threatening'. It is said that it is polarized into negative things. 'I sometimes forget that Ai-Da isn't human,' Meller said. 'Portrait is a combination of superposition techniques. There are pictures, there are algorithms, and there is a reaction to it.' There is, there is a picture, and the portrait is a collection of completely different types of technology, and we are looking at the work through that layer. '
