Inspiration Series | Ai-Da, The World's First Ultra Realistic Robot Artist

About this Event

PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE TO WEDS 11th DEC

Artificial Intelligence, combined with one of the most traditional form of art, drawing. When both polarities of innovation and human transcendence are unified, we are introduced to Ai-Da, the world's first ultra realistic robot artist.

The AI robot, who was invented by gallery director Aidan Meller, can draw things from life using a cameras in her eyes, and a mechanical arm developed at Leeds University, and algorithms developed by scientists at the University of Oxford. Ai-Da is a humanoid robot with artificial intelligence and mechanical arms. Facial-recognition technology allows her to draw pencil portraits of people by scanning their features with the cameras in her eyes and using the robotic arm to map them on paper. To create paintings, Ai-Da's drawings are fed into AI algorithms that interact with the Cartesian plane to plot them along two axis and create abstract versions of her art.

Ai-Da will be speaking with Tim Marlow, current Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts which, under his lead, has seen exhibtions from some of the worlds foremost artists including Antony Gormley, Lucian Freud, Marina Abramovic and Phyllida Barlow. After an incredible 5 years at the RA, Tim will soon take up the post of Chief Executive Director of The Design Museum, London.

This is a bound-to-be an awe-inspiring talk, with a guest unlike any other...! Technology and art enthusiasts, seekers of the future, lovers of the past, come together, because this talk will definitely leave you jaw-dropped!

Doors Open 19.00PM for cocktails from Ketel One.

Please arrive on time as the talk kicks off at 19.30PM on the dot!
