****NEW THURSDAY CLUB EVENT @ GOLDSMITHS with *HAROLD COHEN* on *16 OCTOBER, 5-7PM*** BEN PIMLOTT LECTURE THEATRE, GOLDSMITHS * AARON, THE WORLD'S FIRST PURE A.I. ARTIST * This is a special event co-hosted by the Goldsmiths Digital Studios and the Dept. of Design The AARON software has been continually developed since 1973, hand crafted by Harold Cohen to generate his paintings. Aaron is thought to be the world's first pure A.I. (artificial intelligence) artist. He was created by Harold Cohen who represented Britain at the Venice Biannual in the late Sixties. Shortly after that he decided to relocate to San Diego to create the world's first Artificial Intelligence artist. He named it Aaron after his son. Aaron started out making very childlike pictures but has been learning. Aaron at 30 years of age is now making very good art. This raises some very intriguing questions about art and our relationship with computers.Aaron was recently exhibited at the Bernard Jacobson Gallery.
