An interesting portrait of the Queen created by a humanoid robot artist from Oxford has been unveiled ahead of the Platinum Jubilee.

The painting, titled Algorithm Queen, was painted by Ai-Da Robot – an artificial intelligence robot designed by Oxford art specialist Aidan Meller and built in 2019. 

Ai-Da uses cameras in its eyes and its computer memory, before using a variety of unique algorithms to paint, draw and abstract images with its robotic arm.

The robot, named after Ada Lovelace, can also speak and said: “I’d like to thank Her Majesty the Queen for her dedication, and for the service she gives to so many people.

“She is an outstanding, courageous woman who is utterly committed to public service.

“I think she’s an amazing human being, and I wish The Queen a very happy Platinum Jubilee.”

Mr Meller, who has a gallery on Turl Street said: "We are excited Ai-Da Robot has made history just in time for the Queen’s Jubilee.

“Algorithm Queen by Ai-Da Robot gives us a marker of how far things have come in her life, and a great way to acknowledge her faithful service.”

The robot’s capabilities were developed by PhD students and professors Oxford and Birmingham universities.

Algorithm Queen will be exhibited publicly in London later this year and revealed on the Ai-Da Robot artist website at 10am on May 27.
