Artificial intelligence reveals previously unrecognised influences between great artists

My colleague, Mark Wilson, brought this interesting application of machine learning to my attention; a program that detects artistic influences between artists.

It's quite easy for us to see that Georges Braque's Man with a Violin (left) and Pablo Picasso's Spanish Still Life: Sun and Shadow are clearly related to each other - both were painted in 1912 and are pioneering cubist works. However, a new technique developed at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and Microsoft research in Cambridge, UK can find relationships and influences which hitherto have been unknown to art historians. You can read more about the project here.
