Robots in the World of Art
Robots usually come to mind when speaking about math, science, or engineering. However, as technology seeps into all aspects of our lives, robots are everywhere, including the art world. With the development of artificial intelligence, artists are now able to watch as robots not only replicate famous works of art, but create art of their own. These robots aren't just mimicking brushstrokes, but the actual process a human artist uses to paint. Some artistic teams are working on a variety of methods including using a remote control to guide a robot's paintbrush, using eye-tracking systems to determine the robot's movements on a canvas, and programming a robot to disassemble and reconstruct input images. Robots can use these abilities to allow the physically disabled to create art via remote control. All these developing techniques produce innovative new works that art viewers can appreciate.
