Life-Drawing Robot may provide insights into the role of sketching in design
and into human creativity and aesthetic sense.
According to New Scientist (04/01/10), Aikon, a robot that can sketch a
human face has been developed by computer science designers Frederic Fol
Leymarie and Patrick Tresset at Goldsmiths, University of London. Aikon uses
processes that copy human thought and physiological processes. The team
hope work with Aikon can start to reveal some understandings of creativity.
