Google Can Now Find Art That Looks Like Your Pet

Google’s “Pet Portraits”, a new feature in its Arts and Culture app, allows users to submit a photo and let the artificial intelligence match it with thousands of art pieces.

Similar to the 2018 selfie doppelgangers feature, Google’s Arts and Culture app allows users to match pet portraits to works of art from museums and galleries around the globe.

The app uses machine-learning algorithms to match pet portraits. These can be taken with either a smartphone camera or an image already saved. It also makes use of a library that includes tens of thousands artworks from Google’s partner institutions. These examples were created using photos taken by PetaPixel’s staff.

The photo can be matched not only with paintings, but also with sculptures, street art, and any other art pieces that the AI finds to be similar to the original pet’s image.

You can share a few results with your friends as either individual images or as a GIF sideshow. To learn more about each piece of art, users can click on it.

Although the results may not be perfect, it is still fun to see a pet’s beloved doppelganger in a historical painting or statue.

PetaPixel has tested the feature and can confirm it works well. The app will zoom in to show a closer-up of the pet. The best way to ensure that the pet is clearly visible in your photo and in front of the camera is to make it hilarious.

The app also offers other interactive features such as “Art Transfer”, which transforms photos using classic artwork styles, and “Color Palette”, which allows users to find art using colors from uploaded photos. There are also other immersive experiences like “Art Camera” that lets you explore high-definition artworks and “Virtual Reality Tours,” among others.

This feature is available in the Google Arts & Culture App, which can be downloaded on iOS and Android.
