Description

Three controversial paintings by Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt were lost to a fire in WWII.

Recently, the Google Arts and Culture Lab gave it a try ... by tapping into artificial intelligence. In this episode of the Future of Everything, WSJ's Ariana Aspuru explores how researchers are using AI to better understand art, artists and the creative process.
