Robot Artist Ai-Da Just Addressed U.K. Parliament About the Future of A.I. and ‘Terrified’ the House of Lords, Jo Lawson-Tancred, δημοσίευση στο Artnet [12/10/2022]Marilena Pateraki
The artificial intelligence-powered robot Ai-Da has become the first of her kind to speak at the U.K. Parliament after addressing the House of Lords yesterday, alongside her creator, artist and gallerist Aidan Meller.
She appeared before the peers of the Communications and Digital Committee to give evidence on the impact of technology on the creative industries.
The humanoid robot artist, whose name is a tribute to the mathematician Ada Lovelace, was developed in 2019 by Cornish robotics company Engineered Arts and computer A.I. researchers at the universities of Oxford and Birmingham.
Conceived as a contemporary art project intended to explore the artistic potential of A.I., Ai-Da has made headlines in recent years for a number of artworks, including a portrait of Queen Elizabeth to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee and “Leaping into the Metaverse”, a solo exhibition in Venice during this year’s biennale.
