Grand Prix winner – Cyber: ING – The Next Rembrandt

Having a category called Cyber make it sounds rather dated – but this digital project from J Walter Thomson Amsterdam is as current as it gets. And very traditional in feel.

This painting may look like a real work by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn, but was actually created using artificial intelligence and 3D printing. Its creators used machine learning to train a computer using Rembrandt's 346 actual works – including using facial recognition to define and create an idealised 'Rembrandt' face.

The resulting image was 3D printed to lay down 'brushstokes' in the same way as the old master himself.
