Created by Ai-Da Robot in London, England , 2019

Ai-Da is an AI robot, invented by gallery director Aidan Meller, that can draw portraits from images captured by a camera in her eye, which is processed through AI algorithms and turned into real space coordinates, which Ai-Da then draws using her robotic motorized arm. The mechanical arm was developed at Leeds University, and the algorithms were developed by scientists at Oxford. In order to draw, the camera analyses the object in front of it and creates a virtual path, which is fed into a path execution algorithm that produces real-space coordinates for the robotic arm. Ai-Da's style is influenced by the breakthroughs in portraiture from the early twentieth century, including the expressionist and cubist movements. The portraits are distorted, jagged and fragmented, where the identity and character is both perceivable and obscured at the same time.
