Galleries are using AI to measure the ‘quality’ of art… SET ME AFLAME

AI has set its destructive sights on one of life’s greatest pleasures: visiting galleries.

An Italian museum has started using AI-powered cameras to measure the “attraction value” of works of art.

The ShareArt devices collect visual data on spectators, such as how long they look at a painting and where on the canvas their attention is focused.

“Thanks to simple data elaboration, an observer’s gaze can be translated into a graphic,” Stefano Ferriani, one of the researchers behind the project, told Bloomberg CityLab. “We can detect where most of peoples’ attention is concentrated.”

The ENEA and Istituzione Bologna Musei collaborated on the AI camera system.
