The AI robotic, who become invented by means of gallery director Aidan Meller, can draw things from lifestyles using a built-in digital camera, a mechanical arm developed at Leeds University, and algorithms evolved by using scientists at Oxford.
In order to draw, the digital camera evaluation the object in the front of it and creates a virtual path, that is fed into a route execution set of rules that produce actual-area coordinates for the robotic arm.
Ai-Da is a humanoid robot with artificial intelligence and mechanical arms
Facial-popularity technology lets in her to draw pencil snapshots of people via scanning their capabilities with the cameras in her eyes and the use of the robotic arm to map them on paper.
To create artwork, Ai-Da’s drawings are fed into AI algorithms that interact with the Cartesian aircraft to devise them alongside two axes and create abstract variations of her artwork.
A 3-d-published sculpture of a bee become created by way of combining a drawing Ai-Da did of a micro-CT scan of an actual-life bee made with the aid of professor Javier Alba-Tercedor.
This drawing turned into fed into an AI Bees Algorithm that used swarm intelligence to interpret the coordinates of the drawing.
The exhibition, called Unsecured Futures, also sees Ai-Da carry out. She begins with pencil sketches before switching to paint and clay.
“The exhibition questions our dating with the era and the natural international through providing how AI and new technologies may be simultaneously an innovative, disruptive and negative pressure within our society,” said the gallery.
“As a humanoid robot, she is an artwork item in herself, raising questions surrounding biotechnology and trans-humanism,” it introduced.
Other latest exhibitions exploring robots and AI encompass a set up full of white spheres programmed to transport as if they had their personal personalities, and a gaggle of robotic fingers programmed to act like a percent of animals.
Unsecured Futures is on show at St John’s College, The Barn Gallery, St Giles, Oxford, from 12 June till 6 July 2019.

The Simulated Universe argument suggests that the universe we inhabit is an elaborate emulation of the real universe. Everything, including people, animals, plants, and bacteria are part of the simulation. This also extends further than Earth. The argument suggests that all the planets, asteroids, comets, stars, galaxies, black holes, and nebula are also part of the simulation. In fact, the entire Universe is a simulation running inside an extremely advanced computer system designed by a super intelligent species that live in a parent universe.
In this article, I provide an exposition of the Simulated Universe argument and explain why some philosophers believe that there is a high possibility that we exist in a simulation. I will then discuss the type of evidence that we would need to determine whether we exist in a simulation. Finally, I will describe two objections to the argument before concluding that while interesting, we should reject the Simulated Universe argument.
The possibility that we exist in a simulated universe is derived from the idea that it is possible for a computer to simulate anything that behaves like a computer. A computer can run a simulation of any mechanistic system that follows a pre-defined series of rules. Now, because the Universe is a rule-following system that operates according to a finite set of physical laws that we can understand, it follows that it can be simulated by a computer.
