Just in time for the Platinum Jubilee, a portrait of the Queen painted by a robotic humanoid artist was unveiled.

The artwork, titled Algorithm Queen, was painted by Ai-Da – an artificial intelligence robot built in 2019 that creates drawings, paintings and sculptures.

Initially, Ai-Da uses cameras in her eyes and computer memory before using a variety of unique algorithms to paint and draw images.

A robotic arm lets Ai-Da transform digital formations into physical drawings and paintings.

Algorithm Queen was layered and scaled to create the final multi-dimensional portrait of the monarch.

The artistic process of the machine was developed to reflect the various aspects of the technological change that took place during the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Ai-Da — named after 18th-century mathematician and scientist Ada Lovelace — is also able to converse using a specially designed language model.

“I would like to thank Her Majesty the Queen for her dedication and the service she renders to so many people,” said the humanoid robot.

“She is an outstanding, courageous woman who gives her whole heart to public service,”

“I think she is an amazing person and I wish the Queen a very happy platinum anniversary.”

Ai-Da was developed in Oxford by modern and contemporary art specialist Aidan Meller before being built in Cornwall by Engineered Arts and programmed internationally.

The robot’s capabilities were developed by PhD students and professors from the Universities of Oxford and Birmingham.

“We are delighted that Ai-Da Robot has made history just in time for the Queen’s Jubilee,” said Meller.

“We are in unprecedented technological times and as such we are pleased to be able to take a moment to reflect on all that has changed in the Queen’s life.”

Algorithm Queen will go on public display in London later this year and will be featured on artist Ai-Da Robot’s website on May 27th at 10am.
