Deep Learning Algorithm ‘Paints’ in the Style of Any Artist it Copies

Deep learning algorithms have found a remarkable number of applications within just a few brief years: Google has used it for its image recognition and translation tools, and medical companies are developing programs that can detect diseases. Now, it’s being applied to the replication and understanding of art. A group of researchers at the University of Tubingen in Germany developed an algorithm that can distill the essence of a painting’s “style” and transform any image to fit that style, allowing the computer program to “paint” after the fashion of an inputted artwork.  “The system uses neural representations to separate and recombine content and style of arbitrary images, providing a neural algorithm for the creation of artistic images,” the researchers wrote.…
