A 3D-printed painting created based on big data and generated via computer algorithms. Data scientists, engineers and art historians were involved in the project, which resulted in scanning Rembrandt’s complete body of work to create a painting mimicking the look of an actual new work by the artist. Designed to create a conversation about the relationship between art and technology, the Dutch bank’s portrait consists of over 148 million pixels, based on 168,263 painting fragments. The Next Rembrandt won Grands Prix in both Creative Data and Cyber at Cannes Lions 2016.

there’s a robot in control of a mine shaft and it realizes there is a cart filled with four human miners hurdling down the tracks out of control. The robot can choose to shift the tracks and kill one unaware miner thus saving the four in the cart, or keep the tracks as they are and allow the four miners to run into a wall and die. Which would you choose? Would your answer change if the one miner was a child instead? If we can’t answer this, how do we program robots to make that decision?

In the early 17th-century, cartographer William Hole illustrated strange, anthropomorphised maps of England and Wales, left uncoloured for nobles to fill in. Soon to be republished by Unicorn Press in Albion’s Glorious Ile, Hole’s maps are regarded as one of the earliest known examples of a colouring book.
The trend actually dates back more than 400 years, and one of the earliest books intended for amateur coloring and is about to be republished, centuries after it was first printed.
The maps in Albion’s Glorious Ile, out in June from Unicorn Press, were commissioned to illustrate the poet Michael Drayton’s 17th-century, 15,000-line poem, Poly-Olbion. Describing England and Wales –Coloring was a popular activity for the nobles and continued till the 19th century.
Google’sCultural Institute, the company’s initiative to preserve the world’s culture and history by bringing it online, has this morning unveiled a new project aimed at allowing web users the ability to view art up close – down to the very brushstrokes. Google had invented a new camera it’s dubbing the “Art Camera,” which is a custom-built, robotic camera capable of capturing gigapixel images quickly.
The camera is steered by a robotic system taking hundreds or even thousands of high-resolution close-ups. To focus precisely, it uses both a laser and sonar system. The latter uses high-frequency sound to measure the distance of the artwork to better position itself.
Google says it’s software is capable of stitching the images together to create a single image. The images are being shared online, so people can get as close to experiencing the art as possible, apart from viewing it in real life.
Many of the details found in paintings,are those that you only see when you view the art in person by walking up to the canvas. Therefore, you can see things like the way Impressionists combine dabs and dashes of paint to form an image that becomes clearer as you step back, or uncover hidden items like a hidden signature.
