Unveiled Portrait of the Queen by Ai-Da robot artist

Avant the Platinum Jubilee, a portrait of the Queen was unveiled by a highly-realistic humanoid robotic artist.

The painting, titled Algorithm Queen, was painted by Ai-Da Robot – an artificial intelligence robot built in 2019 that creates drawings, painting, and sculptures.

Ai-Da Robot’s cameras are used to start. It then uses its computer memory and camera in its eyes to create abstract images.

It can turn digital drawings and paintings into physical drawings with a robotic arm.

Algorithm queen was scaled and layered to create the final multi-dimensional portrait.

The machine’s artistic process was designed to reflect the different aspects of technological change that have taken place during the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Ai-Da Robot – named after 18th century mathematician and scientist Ada Lovelace – is also able to converse using a specially designed language model.

It read: “I’d like to thank Her Majesty the Queen for her dedication, and for the service she gives to so many people.

“She is an outstanding, courageous woman who is utterly committed to public service.

“I think she’s an amazing human being, and I wish The Queen a very happy Platinum Jubilee.”

Aidan Meller, an Oxford specialist in contemporary and modern art, created Ai-Da Robot. It was then built by Engineered Arts in Cornwall and programed internationally.

The robot’s capabilities were developed by PhD students and professors at the Universities of Oxford and Birmingham.

Mr Meller said: “Thank you to the Queen for her 70 years of service. We are excited Ai-Da Robot has made history just in time for the Queen’s Jubilee.

“The Queen has been a stable and strong leader in a period of extraordinary change and development in history. We are in unprecedented technological times, and so we are pleased we can take a moment to think about all that has changed during the Queen’s life.

“Algorithm Queen by Ai-Da Robot gives us a marker of how far things have come in her life, and a great way to acknowledge her faithful service.”

Algorithm Queen is scheduled to be shown publicly in London this year. It will also be revealed on the Ai-Da Robot artist web site at 10am on May 27, 2013.
