On my own time, I decided to go visit the Artistes and Robots exhibition at the Grand Palais. The exhibition showcased ways that robots are being engineered to create art using artificial intelligence. Not only was it wonderful to see how science and art can come together, but also I found it mesmerizing how these scientists are being able to create such a technology. In the picture above, you can see the creation of an artificial neuron that is able to grasp sensory information from its environment and learn from it. I took this selfie after the technology had perceived that I was right in front of it and created a representation of what he was “looking at.” This idea is a little scary, and it makes me think that those things we think of as science fiction today may not be so far from existing in the near future.
