Be first to create Google’s ‘Art Selfie’

“With Google Arts & Culture you can visit top exhibits, zoom in on artworks in mind-blowing detail and browse thousands of stories, photos, videos, and manuscripts. Be your own curator by finding your favorites, creating your own collections and sharing them with friends,” is written in Art Selfie description.

The Art Selfie app is developed by Google and is based on machine learning. When you take a selfie, the image is compared with faces in the pieces of art that Google gathered from 1200 museum partners.

Google, in a blog post, stated they are about to “make art more accessible to everyone.” Michelle Luo, Product Manager, Google Arts & Culture, says, “You can be matched with tens of thousands of portraits – sometimes with surprising results like the heart-warming example of a woman in St Louis, US whose selfie was matched with a portrait of her great-grandmother, Emma.

“Give it a try and who knows, you might share similarities the portrait of Emperor Gojong or one of Frida Kahlo’s works.”

“We can’t wait to see how people around the world use Art Selfie to learn more about art and culture. We trust you’ll have as much fun with the feature as this couple getting matched to husband and wifea random Zombie or like this art fan, who visited his match in the actual museum,” the blog post reads.

Interesting and valuable pictures from over 1200 institutions across 70 countries are now available for Android 5.0 Lollipop and iOS users.
