AI that can assess if a painting is fake. Husband-and-wife team, Steven and Andrea Frank, have developed a neural network that can assess the probability that a painting was painted by the supposed creator. They ran their neural network on a newly discovered Leonardo da Vinci painting called the Salvator Mundi which in 2017 sold at Christie’s for a record $450 million dollars, which at the moment, is the most expensive painting ever sold. Would you trust AI to tell you if art you were about to purchase was authentic? Listen and decide for yourself. I speak with my friend Maroof Farook who is an AI Engineer at Nvidia. [Note: Maroof’s views are his and not that of his employer.] Please enjoy our conversation.
