Okay, so this is Ada Robot, a humanoid, ultra realistic robot artist.
And she's here with her drawing arm.
We got the actual robot itself commissioned by Engineered Art, based in Cornwall.
And we then further expertise with creating the arm from Salah and Ziad in Leeds.
And then we've got even further technology with the A.I. programming for the algorithms from Oxford University from aiding Gomes and Charlene Lamb.
And together but all of the different contributors has then enabled us to create this incredible ultra realistic robot.
One of the biggest stresses of the entire project is time.
We really wanted to get this out there as fast as we could, because we knew that the technology was only just emerging in what we were doing, and therefore we knew that other people would be looking at this, and we wanted to be the first groundbreaking.
Robot part of this type.
So therefore, as a result of that, we put huge amounts of stress and pressure to the whole system because we were trying to do some quickly.
[SOUND] So I asked this question in the next five to 10 years, what is the big thing now?
What is the thing that really gets people excited catfishing That was the binding force, technologically, all of the things that are coming through in the next decade and as I said, as I gaze into all aspects of the world, as different industries take it on is going to change dramatically, the whole operation the world.
And that's all coming now right at the beginning of that place.
It's still pretty limited, but actually, it's increasingly not.
And I could see with [UNKNOWN] going towards a singularity.
And the fact that there's gonna so much technological power at our disposal.
In actual fact, AI is gonna be even bigger.
And with that.
Now why don't we get AI robot that comments on all of the things that are going on AI.
I look at the talent and technology that is robotics.
Look at the A.I. The whole point it became very clear.
So with that [UNKNOWN] Lovelace, the first computer programmer of all time.
We realize actually this was incredible.
Everything has got to be about the art.
Without the integrity of a robot artist, isn't it?
Even if the robot is amazing and all the rest of it, if the artist not When it needs to reach two, and so we realized that innovation in the artistic practice with the focus so we did a humanoid artist so that you can relate to it over to understood science see it from their view.
And actually that was a whole concept that we then develop.
We realized that being a robot wasn't either is not a there is a machine So therefore you could get a different view this other not part of the campaign.
The results of that lie makes it part the exact.
Who is Ada?
Is she a settlement?
Is she real or a fiction?
Is she an avartar?
Autonomous or is there somebody behind it?
Or is it a fusion of lots of people?
Well, actually, she's all of those.
It is quite uncanny.
When you see her, you are feeling a bit uneasy.
You can't just dismiss it.
It doesn't quite fit to be as we know it today.
And that's why we keep using this expression.
She's a new guys One of the things that we create with this is a new voice because she's at other technologies.
She's, she's not human, but she is able to the work that she does have humans look at this and try and get meaning from it.
With that in mind when she does a call to a. You can do it through the algorithm, through the AI algorithm.
We thought, actually, why don't we have an expressive quality in that?
So these portraits are not necessarily tied to the drawing.
We did that deliberately, because again, we wanted to show a new style, a new way of, even this word of expression Again, tricky word.
But actually the corporates are quite expressive.
Machine learning is incredibly exciting.
So let's explore and not put too much pressure on it.
Let's just find out what we can do with it.
And so I'm very relaxed with the fact that it will do things with humans, and also autonomously.
I think the whole mixture We should restrain it.
Listen, this is an incredible decade coming up.
He doesn't want his I'm really excited, like I said, also concerned about so let's go explore some of that messaging
