AI Portraits | The experience of being portrayed by an AI algorithm

AI Portraits Ars uses Artificial Intelligence to reproduce artistic human portraits, with different styles and levels of abstraction. For our model training, we adopt a data set of tens of thousands of paintings from the Early Renaissance to Contemporary Art. This type of portraiture is quite distinctive of the Western artistic tradition. Training our models on a data set with such strong bias leads us to reflect on the importance of AI fairness.
