Ai-Da becomes World’s First Robot to Paint like an Artist

The robot has a robotic arm with which it can create stunning paintings, a realistic looking face structure, along with eyes that can scan the surroundings and also blink like humans.

Ai-Da, a novel robot developed by English gallerist Aidan Meller and Cornish robotic business Engineered Arts, is the world’s first artificial intelligence-powered robot that can paint just like an artist. 

The developers of this robot claim it to be “the first ultra-realistic humanoid artist.” Ai-Da was first introduced back in 2019 at Oxford University, after which it has traveled across the world to showcase its capabilities. 

Recently in 2021, Ai-Da also displayed her artwork at the Design Museum located in London. The robot has a robotic arm with which it can create stunning paintings, a realistic-looking face structure, along with eyes that can scan the surroundings and also blink like humans.

“We haven’t spent eye-watering amounts of time and money to make a very clever painter. This project is an ethical project,” said the developer of the robot, Aidan Meller. 

AI algorithms lead Ai-Da to probe, pick, make decisions, and, eventually, create a painting, with her camera fixated on her subject. The developers say that Ai-Da can not only paint but can also sculpt, sketch, and even write poems. 

As artificial intelligence is an evolving technology with breakthroughs each year, Ai-Da also gets updated regularly, which helps in expanding and further refining its capabilities. 

While the AI-powered robot has not yet been able to create entirely unique pieces of art, her five-hour method from start to finish ensures that no two paintings are the same. Ai-Da’s new painting style was introduced before her solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2022, which will open to the public on April 22. 

“Ai-Da Robot, as technology, is the perfect artist today to discuss the current obsession with technology and its unfolding legacy,” added Meller.
