“Portrait of Edmond Belami” was painted by artificial intelligence
In New York, at Christie’s auction, they sold the painting “Portrait of Edmond Belami”, which was painted by artificial intelligence. The neural network was developed by a team of IT artists – Obvious. Initially, the product was estimated at 10 thousand dollars, but as a result, the price increased to 432.5 thousand. A machine-less learning algorithm was used, built on a combination of two neural networks, one of which generates samples and the other distinguishes correct samples from incorrect ones. Simply put: the neural network went through the options and tried to make an image by mixing a large array of sources.
