Christie's To Auction Painting Made By A.I.

According to Reuters, a team of French entrepreneurs have developed a computer algorithm that creates original paintings with some resemblance to works by Old Masters like Rembrandt. The auction house Christie’s has put one of the paintings on sale in New York with a price estimate of $7,000 to $10,000. One of the group's founders said, “We are artists with a different type of paintbrush. Our paintbrush is an algorithm developed on a computer." The artworks are created by the Generative Adversarial Network. The algorithm learns to generate new images by being fed a database of existing paintings.
