Christie’s expected estimation of the price of the portrait created by AI was around $7000 to $10000, But they were surprised at the AI made portrait was sold for 40 times the original estimate. The portrait was sold for $432,000.

The portrait was made by ink, canvas and an AI algorithms and it was signed with a math equation.

Pierre Fautrel, who is the co-founder of Obvious, the art collective that has created the portrait said in a statement, “We gave the algorithm 15,000 portraits and the algorithm understands what the rules of the portraits are, and creates another one.”

The goal behind the painting and the mission of Obvious is to prove that “artificial intelligence can do more than operate driverless cars or transform manufacturing — it can be creative.”

Obvious has actually made this statement on his website –

“Computers are useless. They can only give answers.” Well Picasso (1881 – 1973), it’s a disagreement.

According to British auction house Christie’s, Portraiture is a tough genre for Artificial Intelligence since humans are highly attuned to the curves and complexities of a face in a way that a machine cannot be.

The creative house Obvious also shared how the GAN algorithm was used to create the Edmond de Belamy.
