Robot falls asleep while being quizzed by Lords

Humanoid robot artist Ai-Da has told a Lords committee “although not alive, I can still create art”.

A little while after making the comments, the robot needed to be reset, with sunglasses put on her face as “when we reset her, she can sometimes pull quite interesting faces”.

Ai-Da was appearing at the evidence session for the House of Lords Communications and Digital Committee, alongside her creator, Aidan Meller.
