After the resounding success of the French art group Obvious that in October 2018 sold the painting “Portrait of Edmond Bellamy” nearly half a million dollars, modern art, based on artificial intelligence technology, has received worldwide recognition, inspiring a team of robototehnical creating their own synthetic creators. For example, one such recent development is the humanoid artist Ai-Da, created by British engineers. The machine uses artificial intelligence technology and creates portraits from life, and conceptual paintings in the style of abstract art.
Robot artist capable of drawing what he sees thanks to the built in “her” eyes to the camera, was named after the mathematician Ada Lovelace, considered the first programmer in history. The machine can move and can give answers to different questions, using the most likely mimics.
Robot are going to show the public the exhibition “Unsecured futures”, which will be held in Oxford on 12 June. The exhibition was organized by Aidan Meller hopes that interest in the exhibition will give impetus to public control over innovative technology and artificial intelligence in General. According to Meller, today the world is on the border era of the emergence of humanoid robots, due to what many is curious enough to look at their influence on art.
Modesty aside, the organizers of the exhibition compared the work of Ai-Da with the advent of photography. Then, too, it seemed to many that the classical art then die. As it turned out, photographic equipment only complements existing techniques and not replaced them.
The exhibition in the Hermitage
For those who are not eager to go to the UK to look at the robot Ai-Da at work, there is an alternative. 7 June in the Hermitage Museum opened the exhibition “Artificial intelligence and the dialogue of cultures”, dedicated to the artistic possibilities of artificial intelligence. It involved 14 artists and creative teams from 10 countries. The official website of the Museum described a few examples of the submitted works.
So, the artist of Lulua al-Hamoud from Saudi Arabia creates on the basis of the Arabic alphabet abstract graphic form of the new language that pretends to be a universal means of communication.

An installation by Italian David Quayola represents the “look” of artificial intelligence at the paintings of the classics of impressionism, and the Refik Anadol from Turkey in the “hallucination Machine” analyzes the 100 of thousands of photographic memories of the architecture.

Involved and already rocked the whole world of the French art group is Obvious, representing three portraits from “a Series of fictional portraits of the family de Belami”.
There are Russian names. For example, Nobel laureate in physics in 2010 for the discovery of the material graphene, Konstantin Novoselov, in his installation explores the limits of machine learning, drawing Parallels with works created by human intelligence.
According to the website, most of the works included in the exhibition are the result of extensive processing of databases using artificial intelligence technologies. In particular, we are talking about using generative-adversarial networks (generative-adversarial networks, GAN), which uses simultaneous operation of two algorithms, one of which creates images, and the second their critically interprets and weeds out the unsuccessful.
The working principle of generative-adversarial networks has brought artificial intelligence to a human, giving him the ability to imagine and think critically about information received, marks the site of the Hermitage. The activity of both components of GAN is balanced and assumes an adversarial, rather than competitive in nature, which allows to achieve the best result.
