Human and Machine Symbiosis. Portrait drawing with A.I and Robot. by Ming Tang.
Check out the 3D tour of the virtual gallery.
This work explores how Artificial Intelligence and Robots interact with humans and form a unique symbiotic relationship in painting. The co-creation follows steps: 1. Used Machine Learning and Deep Neural Network algorithm to translate a picture of a human face into a styled image. 2. Translate the face’s representation into a parametrically controlled toolpath for the KUKA robot 3. A KUKA robot executed the art-making by holding a paintbrush.
Please check out the full paper on the art-making process here, published at the 2022 HCI conference.
