Humanoid Robot Artist Gears Up For First Solo Exhibition

Ai-Da , “the world’s first ultra-realistic AI humanoid robot artist” has opened her first solo exhibition. Composed of eight drawings, 20 paintings, four sculptures and two video works - Ai-Da has certainly opened a new chapter in the art world. Ai-Da’s British inventor and gallery owner Aidan Meller tells Reuters how the robot artist creates, and the impact of her first solo exhibition: 

“The technological voice is the important one to focus on because it affects everybody,” he told Reuters at a preview.
“We’ve got a very clear message we want to explore: the uses and abuses of A.I. today, because this next decade is coming in dramatically and we’re concerned about that and we want to have ethical considerations in all of that.”
Ai-Da can draw from sight thanks to cameras in her eyeballs and AI algorithms created by scientists at the University of Oxford that help produce co-ordinates for her arm to create art.
She uses a pencil or pen for sketches, but the plan is for Ai-Da to paint and create pottery. Her paint works now are printed onto canvas with a human painting over.

Computers cannot "create", they can only mash together(at best) information that has been allotted to them. This is a useless and frankly, offensive publicity stunt that serves no real purpose other than to prove that engineers are trying to replace humans in any and every aspect of life. No thanks...I'll stick to real human artwork.
