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
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.
