Google’s Arts & Culture app offers you to convert your selfies into famous paintings, without sitting and waiting for hours.
We all like ancient paintings and there’s no doubt that every one of us are a bit witty about comparing them to our own pictures– now our selfies. Before getting had to pay professional artists to paint them for hours, Google Arts & Culture released the new machine-learning technique for painting doppelgängers of real people. Those time-consuming selfies were also works of art, yet Google app matches them with real paintings in their new upgraded version app, in iOS and Android.
So, how does Google do it? The app uses computer-vision tech to examine what is similar about your face to the thousands of pieces of art that arealready existing in Google by museums and other institutions. Google says this new feature is very experimental, since the app has been around since 2016.
Look through all these amazing look-alike ones, including Pete Wentz’ triplet:
