Paul, the robot who can draw like a human artist


From Digital Trends online magazine.

UK artist Patrick Tresset has eventually turned to robotics, creating a computational system that is “artistic, expressive, and obsessive” in its ability to draw, and more than just a copy machine, Tresset’s robots are designed with an “autonomous artistic creativity” that makes them capable of producing “objects that are considered as artworks.” This project is a serious endeavor with other researchers creating advanced robotic systems, testing them extensively, and publishing their results in scientific journals.

One of his robots is named Paul and the Paul-derived paintings have been exhibited in major art museums and have been acquired by galleries, museums, and art fairs for display. Based on the feedback provided by the art world and the art-loving public, Tresset believes the creations of Paul indeed “are considered as works of art.”
