Harold Cohen's-"Aaron"

The Robot as an Artist

Aaron, the first robot artist, is the brainchild of Professor Harold Cohen, the British abstract painter. The result of 23 years of research and $150,000 Professor Cohen has pushed forward into the realm of artificial intelligence in the development of this unique computer driven robot..

Most recently Aaron created original paintings at The Computer Museum in Boston. Aaron "creates" several images in his computer memory each night. Cohen selects one and for 5-6 hours during the next day Aaron makes line drawings, mixes colors, executes painting strokes, and even cleans the brushes and paint cups.

A selection of Aaron's creations were auctioned over the Internet in May, 1995, at a reserve price of $2000 each.
