The Queen's new AI portrait is, erm, unsettling

Royal portraits come and go all the time, but with the Queen's Platinum Jubilee around the corner, we're seeing an influx of Windsor-related art. But not all of them have been created by an ultra-realistic humanoid robot artist called Ai-Da. 

Marking the first time in history that a humanoid robot has painted the Queen, the Ai-Da Robot has created an image of Elizabeth II to mark her 70th year on the throne. And the piece, titled 'Algorithm Queen', is about as unsettling as you might expect. (Fancy creating your own tribute? Check out our guide on how to download Photoshop.)
