Check out designer Yuxi Liu’s poetic robot project featured on designboom.
the robot has a number of sensors that enable it to sense the world around it: the sea, the wind, the sounds etc. empowered by machine learning, it can discover the patterns, and create associations in its mind. furthermore, it translates these perceptions into poems and writes them on the beach. the robot, thus, is able to have multi-sensory experiences and present a kind of poetic sensibility. in other words, its autonomy does not require the intervention of humans.
