Algorithm Turns Any Picture Into the Work of a Famous Artist

Using Caffe and Tesla K40s, a group of German researchers have created an algorithm that could be the most amazing Instagram filter ever conceived: a convolutional neural network that can convert any photograph into a work of fine art. Last week the researchers released a paper detailing how a computer algorithm could be used to pump out images borrowing the styles of the world’s greatest artists.

The findings are the latest out of the red-hot field of deep learning, in which computers identify and classify patterns in huge data sets. The computer’s thought processes are designed to mirror the way the human brain works.
