The AI Generated Portrait That Sold For Over $400,000

A portrait created using artificial intelligence recently sold for $432,000 when it was auctioned at a New York auction house. The piece entitled Portrait of Edmond Belamy was created by the French company Obvious who specialise in AI research. Over 15,000 pictures of 14th and 20th-century artwork were inputted into a Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) which creates a new image. It does not finish creating the image until the AI cannot differentiate between its creation and the other images. This image is then upscaled and enhanced to create a high definition image which is then printed onto a canvas using an inkjet printer.
