Dancing Artificial Intelligence
(DAI)

*DAI will begin at 2pm on Thurs 10 May*

‘Born’ in 2017, DAI is more than a robot. It* is an Artificial Intelligence artist. What this means is that it thinks; it doesn’t follow a script or act randomly. It learns through experience. Here, in its first physical form, DAI is learning how to move by exploring its body and its environment, and by observing the gestures of the people it encounters.

DAI invites you to be part of its movement creation process, as it searches for ways to overcome some of the limitations that the physical world imposes on its virtual aspirations. Ultimately, it is hoped that DAI will learn how to dance.

*'It' will be used until DAI can communicate his/her/its preference.

“DAI is not a humanoid robot. It creates movements with its own mechanical body, not borrowed from human movements. Unlike most robots, DAI is not useful and this is its artistic value.” - Le Temps

Creators: Jonathan O’Hear, Martin Rautenstrauch and Timothy O’Hear
Performer: DAI
