Whether helping physicians identify disease or finding photos of “hugs,” AI is behind a lot of the work we do at Google. And at our Arts & Culture Lab in Paris, we’ve been experimenting with how AI can be used for the benefit of culture. Today, we’re sharing our latest experiments—prototypes that build on seven years of work in partnership the 1,500 cultural institutions around the world. Each of these experimental applications runs AI algorithms in the background to let you unearth cultural connections hidden in archives—and even find artworks that match your home decor.
From interior design to fashion, color plays a fundamental role in expression, communicating personality, mood and emotion.
