Ai-Da, brainchild of art dealer Aidan Meller, is the world’s first ‘ultra-realistic humanoid artist’. She is designed to draw what she sees with an in-built camera in her eye and a robotic arm that holds a pencil. Meller claims that technology alone is not responsible for the robot’s art and that she has “the incredible technologies and abilities to produce remarkable, innovative, creative artwork”. Ai-Da’s first artworks were displayed at an exhibition at the University of Oxford in mid June and were sold for £1 million ahead of the exhibition.
