Google Uses AI to Find Your Fine-Art Doppelgänger

Google Uses AI to Find Your Fine-Art Doppelgänger

To note: While people in other countries can download the Google Arts & Culture app, this feature is exclusive to the USA for now. An app that is a delight for art and history lovers, one that allows users to take virtual tours of the world's most famous museums and galleries right within their mobile screens, one that is a well of knowledge and information on centuries-old art and cultural history.

It's the latest version of an app from Google that has gone viral because it can find "your portrait", or something that looks like you, hanging in a museum. Google's app will show a percentage for the selfie and the portrait with which it matches. Do not open the app before the next step. While the app is available for download nation-wide, the feature is now only available in select locations.

Did you download the app with the hopes of finding your long lost art twin? The app would need access to the front camera to click a photo.

Users should then scroll down to the section that says "Is your portrait in a museum?" Photos sorts pictures by people, places and things, and includes a feature that nudges users to share photos they have taken of their contacts, which the service recognises. Users can then accept or cancel after reading the terms and conditions.

Joe Root is fit to play first ODI: Eoin Morgan confirms
It had been a tough season last season, so to be selected was incredibly special. Roy saidthe tourists would "absolutely not" rest players during the series .

Unfortunately, the app requires you take a selfie in real time, meaning no uploading embarrassing snaps of your friends you've saved on your camera roll for this objective (or, for me, my cats back home in Vermont).

Scroll through four options to see which is the best match, then find out more about the painting title, artist, and where it now hangs on display.

While this tool came out in December, the app now sits in the number 1 rank of the Google Play and iOS App Store charts after the selfie-matching feature gained popularity on social media. The art doppelgangers are listed by descending order, showing the top matches first.
