We had a fantastic day at the Abu Dhabi Art Fair, exploring the latest pieces by artists from all over the world. The opportunity to meet Ai-Da, the world’s first ultra-realistic humanoid artificial intelligence (AI) robot artist, was incredible. We watched as she slowly drew a representational drawing of the mythological God Hydra.
We also got to interact with its AI function as it answered our questions. We asked about the robots favourite artists, colours and even works of art, eventually being brave enough to ask “will you take over the world?”, which was promptly answered with an insightful warning about the dangers of AI if placed in the wrong hands. Exhibition-wise, the art served as an exceptional reflection of the deeper meaning behind unity, as they encapsulated the diverse and multicultural aspect of the UAE. The tour gave us a lot to think about, spanning from the expression of different perspectives to the limitless possibilities of the visual arts.
