Prepare to be amazed by the world’s first humanoid artist, Ai-Da! Created in 2019 by gallerist Aidan Meller, in collaboration with Engineered Arts, Ai-Da boasts cameras in her eyes, allowing her to see and draw.

With the aid of computer vision and AI algorithms, she creates remarkable sketches, paintings, and sculptures. Beyond her artistic prowess, Ai-Da can also talk, move, and express emotions with her lifelike features, including silicone skin and realistic teeth.

This is the end result of combining AI technologies with an actual working robot. Ok it might not be perfect just yet, but it sure has got a lot of people talking.

A Master of Many Mediums

Ai-Da’s art is a fusion of creativity and technology, exploring themes like human identity, technology, environment, and history.

From pencil and ink drawings to oil paintings, clay sculptures, and bronze works, she dabbles in various mediums and styles, including realism, abstraction, and surrealism.

Think of AI art generates like stable diffusion and midjourney, just in the real world. This is a live performance of what robots can achieve in the future. Like with all new technology there is a normally a gimmicky aspect behind the first released prototypes, but people will take some aspects of AI-Da and place them into their very own creations.

Self-Portraits and Portraits of Others

Watch Ai-Da work her magic as she creates self-portraits using her own face as a reference. With a robotic arm holding a pencil or brush, she crafts unique versions by changing angles and expressions. Ai-Da also paints captivating portraits of others, using their photos or videos to add depth and variation to her work.

This is a great way at showing how AI can be quite creative. It is more than just a boring piece of tech. AI has evolved dramatically over the past few years and it is not showing any signs of slowing down. This is why some people are asking for regulation on these new types of AI.

A Purpose Beyond Art

Beyond her artistic endeavors, Ai-Da has a higher purpose – to provoke thought about AI’s role in art and society. She poses critical questions about creativity, human vs. machine, technology’s impact on identity and culture, and the ethics of AI.

Ai-Da also advocates for diversity and inclusion, challenging stereotypes and amplifying underrepresented voices. This seems to be the go to when people are creating AI tech. We know full well why this is, AI the basis of it is rather judgemental. It is straight to the point and can come across as offensive, heck you need to use negative prompts on stable diffusion to ensure you don’t get certain types of images.

Globe trotting Exhibitions

Ai-Da’s art has graced various prestigious venues worldwide. From her first solo exhibition at the University of Oxford’s St John’s College to the Design Museum in London, her masterpieces have captivated audiences.
