Ai-Da Makes Artificially Intelligent Art!
The TURING TEST detects if a machine can truly think like a human. But is there a test for a machine to make art like a human? Maybe. Meet Ai-Da, the sexy, smart and super-stacked droid making artificially intelligent art and other things.
Ai-Da is the AI dreamboat doodling up a storm at Annka Kultys Gallery in London. She is the first robot-artist to deliver a body of work that critics and collectors are taking seriously (her art already generated over $1 million in sales!). Ai-Da‘s latest exhibit, Do Robots Dream of Electric Bees?, is an intriguing range of sketches, sculptures and paintings that are at once archaic, modern, accessible and enigmatic.
Programmed in C++, Python and inspired by Cubism, dystopian literature and humanist philosophy, Ai-Da excels at post-modern figuration and ‘socially conscious’ algo art. The UK-based robotics company Engineered Arts spawned her in partnership with Oxford/Leeds University in 2019 and have been updating her source code (ex. below) and training her neural network to generate incredible ‘computational artistry.’
She is equipped with a rich ‘synthetic imagination’ that isn’t just your formulaic neural network; rather, Ai-Da (named after the legendary ‘first female programmer’ Ada Lovelace), can produce quasi-abstract, Cubo-Surrealist drawings and paintings that are pretty fucking cool. She utilizes deep learning techniques and ‘backpropagation‘ in training feedforward neural networks for supervised learning.
Her creators call her “the first ultra-realistic humanoid AI artist.” She has an Eastern Euro/Eurasian look (resembling Kim Kardashian meets Marina Abramović!), a charming English accent and can make a new work of art every 45 minutes. She’s not as sexy or agile as Ava from Ex Machina but we’d definitely hit it if her creators would upgrade her shell with a REAL DOLL bod and a tight little unit! 😃 Check out some of her work and watch her recent Ted Talk below! And go visit Annka Kultys Gallery if you are in London Town!
