Can Artificial Intelligence Become a Tool to Detect Art Forgeries?

Written in collaboration with Ahmed Elgammal, professor at Rutgers University

Learned art experts have long used the study of brushstrokes to help authenticate questionable paintings by the great masters. But acquiring a sufficient level of expertise took many years, if not an entire career. In the end, the few such sophisticated art scholars were only found in prominent art institutions and universities.

That’s all about to change.

Quite soon, almost anyone will be able to instantaneously access art knowledge and experience that previously took a lifetime to acquire.

On February 2 in New Orleans, the 32nd AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence will hear from Rutgers University Professor of Computer Science, Ahmed Elgammal, head of the Art and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
