Genius: a supercomputer has created a unique portrait of Borys Paton

"Genius" by AI is a photographical symbol of the 21st century

Not too many people worldwide can demonstrate their family album that has pictures ranging a century. Even royal families have very few of those.

For the work of the first photo portrait that is performed by Artificial Intelligence, the collection of photographs that belongs to the Ukrainian scientist Borys Paton was used. Dr. Paton at his age of 101 is still a relevant president of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine.

The specific algorithm for Artificial Intelligence has been created. It allows to combine into one photograph a 100 years of life of a single person. Portrait photos of Borys Paton that have been taken starting from 1920 were used for this purpose.

The work has been conducted by the programmers from the company "Ashmanov Neural Networks," the supercomputer of which had analyzed two thousand photos of Borys Paton that have been taken throughout his long life. Out of the vast images massive, it has created own version that represented the generalized portrait of a scientific genius of 20-21 centuries.
