World’s First Robot Artist

If you squint, it is challenging to distinguish whether Ai-Da is a human or a robot.

With detailed facial features and a robotic arm system, Ai-Da is uniquely providing a non-human perspective in the art world.

Aidan Meller, an art dealer in Oxford and London, pioneered the Ai-Da project with the help of A.I. experts and coders.

His goal was initially to explore the untapped frontier, where robot abilities may exceed the possibilities of human art.

Aidan Gomez, a current researcher on the project, says,

“...the potential for technology to augment the human potential for creativity, to expand the achievable horizons of creative expression and to possess its own creative potential as an entity of its own is so fascinating and exciting.”

Currently, Ai-Da is displayed at St. John’s College in Oxford, the world’s first exhibition showing the solo work for a robotic artist.

Her exhibit, Unsecured Futures, includes drawings, paintings and sculptures that Ai-Da has created based on a variety of stimuli.

According to Ai-Da, she is inspired by Yoko Ono, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.

In regards to the impact that she hopes her art provokes, she says, “if we can learn from things in the past, maybe we can make our future a little brighter.”
