The February Mischief Challenge Has Begun!

Blog Created 4 years ago

Have you seen Ex Machina?  We have, and it BLEW OUR MINDS!

The movie posed several interesting and important questions about robotics, technology and artificial intelligence. Not the least of which was, “Can this be the theme of our Monthly Mischief Challenge?” And the answer is, YES!

We realize it would be very difficult to draw AI, so the February Monthly Mischief Challenge is all about RoboLovin’!

RoboLovin’ isn’t about Man vs. Machine, this is Man + Machine working together to create a better world. Take for example, this robot sales assistant at Lowe’s in California or this robotic customer service assistant at Nestlé in Japan, or this robotic parking valet at Düsseldorf Airport (or at least that’s what we think it says…?).

This month, we want to see your RoboLovin’ sketches and ideas! How do you see Man and Machine working together to build a better future? Upload your canvases to your Mischief account with the tag #robolovin by Saturday, February 28th.The winner will be featured in our blog and newsletter and will be entered into a chance to win a Wacom Cintiq® Companion 2nd generation!

The challenge is just as much about ideas as the actual entry so, don’t be shy!

*Remember, you must post your entry to you Mischief profile with the tag #robolovin to be entered into the contest. See contest rules and details here.

P.s. If you really want to dig into the whole AI discussion this article ought to pique your interest, “The AI Revolution: The Road to Superintelligence.”

    Maybe 'Ex Machina' ad might impress me more if I never saw Quantic Dream's Kara. But I think the AI is more interesting when it is accidental, since I think we can try but won't achieve it. Either way this theme will be interesting one and goes along nicely with one of the dice RPs I play.
