AARON is a painting robot made by Harold Cohen, capable of using and mixing real paints to create works on canvas. AARON displays a level of unpredictability; with even it’s creator not knowing what it will make. AARON is, however, not technically artificial intelligence, lying somewhere closer to a form of autonomous code. (Cohen, 2018)
Microsoft’s Drawing AI
Microsoft have designed a creative machine capable of making images of what it is told. The machine takes inputs in the form of text, which it then uses to determine what to create. The result is pixel-by-pixel generated images, sitting somewhere between photograph and painting. (Roach, 2018)
