Rembrandt’s “Night Watch” restored, thanks to AI

One of Rembrandt's biggest paintings just got a bit bigger, thanks to AI: A marriage of art and artificial intelligence has enabled Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum to recreate the Dutch master’s iconic “Night Watch” painting in all its glory, more than three centuries after its four edges were cut so that the masterpiece might fit between two doors at Amsterdam’s city hall, the BBC reports. The printed strips are now hung flush to the sides of the painting in the museum's Gallery of Honor. You can track the entire journey of the rehabilitation of Rembrandt’s painting here.
