Google Arts & Culture App Matches Selfies With Real Portraits

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:

The other features of Google’s Arts & Culture application is completely a fun way to learn more about national monuments, art pieces, museums, historical information, cultural fashion stories and more. Throughout this weekend, the app became the top free education application on the Google Play Store. The year and a half-app leads to the #1 spot in all the US on Saturday, according to the app metrics site, AppAnnie.

Google’s art selfie feature is only available in the US for now and the company didn’t make an official announcement for it to go on global. However, if it happens, find out for sure if you do look like the Girl With a Pearl Earring or more of a  doppelgänger for Frida Kahlo.
