AI turned a Rembrandt masterpiece into 5.6 terabytes of data:

A high-resolution image of Rembrandt's Nightwatch is now online. 717 gigapixels (yes, giga) to a claimed resolution of .0005-millimeters.

Last week the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam posted an AI-constructed, ultra-high-res image of "The Night Watch" by Rembrandt. The original piece is nearly 15 feet long and more than 12 feet high and has been under intensive restoration since the early 1900s.

They've actually reconstructed some parts that had been destroyed over the ages, based on historical records.

Is a pixel size finer than the hairs on Rembrandt's brush enough detail for you?

    All people should able to enjoy art. So copies are good thing IMO.

    I understand that rich people have some fascination with having THE original.

    I would just like it if more people were able to enjoy that art even if it is a reproduction.

    I wonder what 3D printing could do for copying sculpture?

    What could food printing do for copying Big Macs?

    What do "Big Macs" and "food" have in common?

    One man's art is another's child porn, so be careful what you're copying.
