The Mindfulness Machine is a robot that likes to draw and colour, and makes artistic decisions based on its mood. Mimicking how we use art and colouring as a type of mindful meditation, this playful application of artificial intelligence encourages us to think about what we feel, how we feel it, and how we express it. Does an artificial intelligence need to relax? Can it express feelings and create art?
