In today’s modern era, technology is progressing quite rapidly. Thanks to the technology of the researchers at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, people can transform photos into 15th-century classical portraits and the internet is buzzing about this viral FaceApp like crazy. AI Portraits uses information from over 45,000 15th-century masterpieces to help “paint” the portrait of any photo that’s uploaded.
The new clever technology uses a technique known as style transfer, in which the algorithm copies surface-level, determines the best style for the portrait by analyzing the features and the background over to a modern-day photo and can render any face into faux oil, watercolor, or ink. Using the best style for the portrait, many people on the internet also transformed many of our favorite celebrities into classical paintings. From Beyonce to Tom cruise, our curated list has got them all. Scroll on to see for yourself and enjoy peeps!
