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

About this Event

PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE TO WEDS 11th DEC

Ai-Da is the world’s first ultra-realistic humanoid robot artist who creates artwork based on Professor Margaret Boden’s philosophical definition of creativity - that it must be novel, surprising and of societal value.

Interviewed at Sarabande by Tim Marlow, Ai-Da was invented to engage discussion around the ethics of new technologies, and what these new technologies means for creativity. She sites Picasso’s Guernica and Orwell’s 1984 as key inspirations for her artistic practise and draws subjects from sight. Each one is completely unique and unreproducible. In an ‘in-conversation’ unlike any other, Tim will question Ai-Da on her taste, inspirations and purpose as an artist, and seek to find how she expects tech to impact the creative industries.

Ai-Da is named after Ada Lovelace, was invented by gallery director Aidan Meller and built by robotics company Engineered Arts; with A.I. programming from PhD students at Oxford University. Since her launch, Ai-Da has been featured in 900 pieces of press including Dezeen, Artsy, and Time. Tim Marlow is current Artistic Director of the Royal Academy and soon to be Director and CEO of the Design Museum.

Ai-Da will be demonstrating her drawing abilities at Sarabande from 2 - 5.30pm on 11th December. Drop in to see how she makes art.

This is 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!

It's the festive season and what better way to celebrate than with delicious cocktails from Ketel One Vodka?! Doors open at 19.00... see you there!

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