My project, A.I. Picasso, is a mechanical pen plotter controlled by an artificial intelligence program. The A.I. program can recognize human faces and convert the images into drawing instructions. The robotic arm then follows the instructions to draw out the sketches of the faces.
The goal of this project is to introduce artificial intelligence to art. Most of the computer arts are human-directed: designed by humans and then generated by the computer. In this project, unlike human-directed computer art, the A.I. pen plotter is the designer, and it makes its own decision during the drawing process. This project produced computer-directed art. It is a fun project, and it has been a good learning experience for me.
