Ai-Da, named after the mathematician Ada Lovelace, is the world’s first humanoid AI robot artist that can draw independently using a robotic arm and an inbuilt camera. She’s set to open her own art exhibition, called “Unsecured Futures,” at Oxford University on June 12th. “Pioneering a new AI art movement, we are excited to present Ai-Da, the first professional humanoid artist, who creates her own art, as well as being a performance artist. As an AI robot, her artwork uses AI processes and algorithms. The work engages us to think about AI and technological uses and abuses in the world today,” said Aidan Meller, Ai-Da’s brainchild and gallery owner.

“Engineers in Leeds developed the robotic hand used by Ai-Da, which follows a number of stages and AI algorithms, calculating a virtual path based on what it sees in front of it and interpreting co-ordinates to create the piece of art. The artwork will include drawing, painting, sculpture and video art, exploring the boundaries between AI, technology and organic life,” reports The Daily Mail.
