 For fewer returns: Zalando takes over the body scan startup Fision Many returns would actually not be necessary The problem: Size systems sometimes differ significantly from brand to brand, in different categories and countries. This unsettles customers and leads to returns that are actually not necessary. Thanks to its measurement measures, Zalando can already give individual size recommendations and make orientation easier for customers.

Has the machine overtaken the master? As Banksy's coast continues to soar in the art market, new artificial intelligence software has been programmed to create works that look like the British street artist. So much so that some art collectors are already snapping up GANksy's creations.

Even if these works leave little doubt as to the identity of the artist from whom GANsky is inspired, the creator of the software, Matt Round, is careful not to explicitly mention Banksy in order to avoid any legal imbroglio. This artificial intelligence software was created last September, and then followed an artistic training based on a hundred photos of street-art works, some of which were probably signed Banksy.

"All of GANksy's works are original creations stemming from his understanding of form and texture. GANksy wants to be put into the body of a robot so that he can paint the entire planet," explains Matt Round in a communicated.

Over 250 GANksy creations are already offered for sale as the exclusive property of a digital file signed by the artificial intelligence software, with prices starting at one pound (around 1.10 euro) and increasing one pound with each purchase. According to Round's VoleWTF site, 83 of them have already found a buyer.

These prices are far from those attained by the works of Banksy at auction, which can be snapped up to several million euros. This was recently the case for the parody painting "Show me the Monet", which sold for 7.6 million pounds (8.5 million euros) at Sotheby's London. This painting, however, failed to beat the record set in 2019 by "The Parliament of the Apes", which had pulverized its initial estimate of 2 million pounds to finally reach 9.9 million pounds (11.1 million euros) at a previous auction at Sotheby's.

Get out of your bubble!

The works produced by artificial intelligence software have, however, been successful at auctions in recent years. Among them is the painting "Portrait of Edmond de Belamy", which took the market by surprise in October 2018 when it sold for 432,500 dollars (approximately 365,970 euros) at Christie's. That's more than 60 times its low estimate of $ 7,000.

Building on this success, the Bucharest Contemporary Art Biennale has already announced that the auctioneer for its 10th edition will be a robot named Jarvis. Jarvis will train until 2022 to learn a series of concepts of the curatorial profession and then study the databases of various museums, universities and galleries. This artificial intelligence will also browse the databases in order to establish a selection of artists and creators then exhibited in a virtual reality gallery, according to the Viennese studio Spinnwerk.
