Record-breaking: It's the first auction for an AI-generated portrait, sold to an anonymous bidder. In fact, its six-figure bid blew the $7,000-$10,000 expected sales price right out of the water. In the Prints & Multiples sale at Christie's, Portrait of Edmond Belamy sold for an incredible $432,500, signalling the arrival of AI art on the world auction stage.
"Portrait of Edmond Belamy", the first ever piece of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-generated art to be auctioned off at Christie's in NY, was sold Thursday for 432,500 US dollars to an anonymous bidder.
First, a set of 15,0000 portraits painted between the 14th and 20th Centuries was fed into a computer.
"The algorithm is composed of two parts", Caselles-Dupré, explaining the process, said in a statement released by the auction house. After that, another tool, called a "Discriminator", attempted to find differences between the human-made image and one created by the Generator. When it could no longer tell the pieces apart, the Generator's work was ready to sell.
For Lloyd, this is just the beginning of AI art.

Obvious isn't the only group making AI-controlled art. Obvious also reiterated that they modified Barrat's code "with his approval" to use for the Famille de Belamy series, and that they gave Barrat credit in their original Medium post about the series after he asked.
It's the brainchild of French collective Obvious, whose aim is to use artificial intelligence to democratise art. Hugo Caselles Dupre, one of the members of Obvious had learnt about Adversarial Neural Network (ANN) during his PhD in machine learning. I think that's what's come downing the pike in the near future. Fautrel insists that it is art since they chose to make it even if algorithm created it.
In the case of the Portrait of Edmond Belamy, only one "artist" appears at the bottom, where the signed name usually appears.
