Developing an Pixel-to-CNC algorithm & implementation for painting AI generated art with an industrial robot.


Abstract

With the exponential growth of computing power in modern computer systems, AI development has made significant progress in recent years. Today’s algorithms are able to generate art whose aesthetics are sometimes hardly distinguishable from human ones. Meanwhile, automation in the physical world starts to evolve into a reactive and fully autonomous process. This project‘s goal is to let an industrial robot paint pictures which are completly generated by a Machine Learning algorithm.

Machines describing man

Generating novel art with Generative Adversarial Networks.


Abstract

Generating art with Machine Learning. This project revolves around the ability of computers to dream up portraits and abstract art. It documents the process of finding datasets, preparing them with high precision, benchmarking hardware and finally training multiple Generative Adversarial Networks (Karras et al.) on different genres of 2D art. It acts as a first attempt of proving that machines gain skills that have been previously reserved to truly intelligent species.

Tangible Interfaces

This is (not) a drill

A tangible interface for displaying the change of the polar ice cap over the past 40 years.

Summary

This is (not) a drill

A tangible interface for displaying the change of the polar ice cap over the past 40 years.


Abstract

Interactive installation showing the extent of the polar ice cap from 1979 to 2018 featuring a 1.8 meter tall ice core sculpture. The projects goal was to compress accurate satellite data from NASA into an approachable visualization and creating an input system, that is closely tied to real scientifc methods, used for analyzing ice cores.

The Greenhouse

Accelerating growth of ideas, like plants in a greenhouse.

Summary

The Greenhouse

Accelerating growth of ideas, like plants in a greenhouse.


Abstract

Concept for a hyperefficient mobile workspace. Designed to provoke human ideas and for connecting all actors required to create successful real-world products. The project attempts to democratize the start-up process and solve common problems of modern work and productivity. It proposes an online platform, where idea holders, manufacturers and investors are recommended and connected to each other. The seed of this concept is a mobile "cube", a possible solution for the workplace of the future. The concept is visualized in a playable Unity game.

Hello World

Examining the state of global surveillance in our modern world and ways to protect yourself.

Hello World

Examining the state of global surveillance in our modern world and ways to protect yourself.


Abstract

How modern governments access your data, why they do it, why they shouldn't and how much you can protect yourself. This book contains essay's about why large institutions decide to break constitutions, as well as special visualizations about crime and terrorism statistics. This book not only gives you an intuition on what data you give away forever but also explains which technologies protect you and which don't.
