Ai-Da basically wants to try to automate what you'd expect to get from a caricature artist on a boardwalk. The bot uses cameras housed in his eyeballs to see what is in front of it, and AI-powered computer vision to identify humans, track their features, and mimic their expressions. The bot wants to draw what it sees, but it'll entertain along the way. The creators have given Ai-Da a realistic human face, complete with a silicone skin, a moving mouth, blinking eyes, 3D printed teeth and gums and a voice to answer questions.
Ai-Da does not want to be as natural as a real person, of course ̵
