AI reveals what Leonardo Da Vinci’s legendary Mona Lisa painting would look like if it was done today

AI reveals what Leonardo Da Vinci’s legendary Mona Lisa painting would look like if it was done today

Let's just say she looks a little... different

You've seen the Mona Lisa but you've never seen her quite like this.

Artificial intelligence has created a version of what it thinks the famous painting would look like if it was created today.

And yes, she does kind of look like she'd feel comfortable posting selfies to Instagram.

In AI's version of the Mona Lisa, she has clear skin, wide green eyes, a perfect nose and quite frankly, a lot of... cleavage.

The image, which was shared online on Twitter and Reddit, created quit a stir in the comments.

Of course, there were a lot of men talking about the painting's new... features.

One person said: "Mona Lisa if she was an Instagram influencer."

Another added: “Mona Lisa looks like she has an OnlyFans. Me after typing in 'hot Mona Lisa with MASSIVE HONKERS'

While others questioned AI's, uh, intelligence.

"AI be putting boobs on pictures and you guys act like it’s like the most amazing thing ever," one person commented.

"Well, it's pretty obvious who invented AI! I no longer feel that threatened by the 'intelligence' part. And authentic is always more fun than artificial."

This isn't the first time AI has been a little creative with the Mona Lisa.

Earlier this year, an image of what the landscape outside of the iconic painting's frame would look like went viral.

At the time, most people agreed that the image was more of a demonstration of the limitations of AI than of its brilliance.

"The core problem with the current AI pitch is the assumption that we should always need or want more, when choosing exactly what we mean to say and show is central to both art and communication. What lies beyond the frame was not chosen; that was the point," tweeted @disco_jill.

While Twitter user @PlanetofFinks pointed out that 'this is actually a great demonstration of what AI can do. In that it doesn't know to give her legs and adds a second horizon above the horizon because it isn't an intelligence and doesn't know anything'.

The original Mona Lisa was painted by Leonardo da Vinci between 1503 and 1506.

The woman featured in the painting is most likely Italian noblewoman Lisa del Giocondo.

The Mona Lisa has been on display at the Louvre in Paris since 1797.
