Dutch artist Bas Uterwijk, from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, has been recreating famous faces into photo realistic images. He does this with the help of 'AI' (which he calls 'Artbreeder') and some other fancy tools using historic paintings as guides. Some are more successful than others. I thought his image of Napoleon above (compared with the original by Jacques-Louis David on the left) is quite amusing. Click here for examples of Rembrandt and Van Gogh.
