Meet The Automated Sketch-Bot That Creates Art Just Like We Do
Imagine this: It’s a not so distant future and robots roam the earth. Only, instead of crunching numbers, building structures or following orders, this peculiar breed of mechanism is autonomously creating art. Yup, one day robots may even be able to create “hand drawn” artworks better than you can, and not all that differently.
Meet Paul-IX, an automated sketch-bot who can outline a still life better than your high school art teacher. The gifted droid, which we spotted on The Creator’s Project, is the brainchild of French artist and scientist Patrick Tresset, who’s been creating similarly creative robots since 2011.
Tresset balances traditional robotic design elements like computer vision, artificial intelligence and cognitive computing with more human qualities, such as how we interact with art. After surveying critics, curators and artists, Tresset has vaguely calculated how humans actually look at art. From these investigations, he’s designed an automated being that can autonomously interpret the world and attempt to represent it through artistic expression.
“The robots I develop are influenced by research into human behavior,” Tresset writes in his self-titled book, “more specifically how human beings depict other humans, how humans perceive artworks and how humans relate —> Read More Here
