Developments in the field of science never stop surprising people especially when it comes to artificial intelligence.
Meet Ai-Da, who is humanoid robot named after mathematician and computer pioneer Ada Lovelace.
Ai-Da is not only “mathematically” smart but uses her intelligence for something as humane as art.
Her eyes work as camera lenses that capture a photo of the subject. She then uses the image as a reference for painting.
