Art AI Gets First Exhibition

Named after Ada Lovelace, the first female computer programmer, Ai-Da is the world’s first humanoid AI robot artist and she’s getting her own exhibition.

From June 12 to June 30, Ai-Da’s artwork will be shown at the Unsecured Futures exhibition at The Barn Gallery, St John’s College, University of Oxford.

How does a robot paint? Ai-Da has an inbuilt camera to “see” people and things. The AI processes what the eye is seeing and interprets this to create a piece of art, using a robotic hand to physically draw the work.

“As an AI robot, her artwork uses AI processes and algorithms,” explained gallery director Aidan Meller. “The work engages us to think about AI and technologies uses and abuses in the world today.”
