MIT develops AI that identifies similarities between unrelated artworks, spanning centuries, artists, and mediums

Art imitating art? That isn’t quite the case here, but a new algorithm developed by the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in conjunction with Microsoft searchers for art that looks like other artworks.

AI robot Ai-Da presents her original artworks in exhibition

Dressed in an oversized white button-up with her long black hair hanging loose, Ai-Da can easily pass for an artist in her studio.
