The Design Museum in London Exhibits Art-Producing Humanoid Robot
AI is practically
everywhere these days—phones, cars, hospitals, outer space. Now, with “Ai-Da Self Portraits” at the Design Museum in London, add arts institutions, and possibly your client’s living room wall, to the list. Named after Ada Lovelace, the pioneering female scientist and mathematician, the robot is the vision of independent gallerist Aidan Meller and researcher/curator Lucy Seal and made by Engineered Arts and University of Oxford PhD students. Ai-Da stands 5 feet 8 inches tall, took a year to build, and has been programmed to use algorithms to create art that comments on the current and future uses of AI. “She” will be present at the opening of the exhibition, alongside the trio of selfies she produced.
