Your spitting image could be found in a work of art! This is what Google can show you thanks to a new setting. In fact, Google Arts & Culture not only allows you to view paintings on your smartphone, it also allows you to find your lookalike, via the tool “Is your portrait in a museum?”
How does it work? You just have to take a selfie. Google takes over from there, thanks to its facial recognition system. Artifice intelligence will search in a data base of 70,000 works and will pick out the painted face which is closest to your own.
Google will also tell you the resemblance percentage, the name of the painting, the painter and the place where you can go to see it in real life. The app is a hit, with users getting stuck in with ease. While some are disappointed, others have found their true lookalike. The results are shocking!
