Meitu Inc, creator world renowned photo-editing app Meitu recently announced Andy the ArtBot, the company’s first ever A.I painting robot. Known to generate 6 billion photos per month globally, Meitu managed to expand its expertise to Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) to create Andy the ArtBot.
What makes Andy the ArtBot so unique?
Unlike other photo-editing functions that add effects to original photos. Andy breaks up and reconstructs photos, then turns them into paintings within 5 seconds. Its segmentation technique is so humanized that it recognizes humans in photos. It is able intelligently remove the backgrounds behind them and turn into a brand new painting.
Undoubtedly, Andy marks the beginning of A.I. in the art industry. More painting styles created through A.I. will be developed as Andy continues to learn. Andy may not be comparable to any of the great painters like Picasso, Van Gogh, etc., but it will certainly lead a different art trend for the future.
