Fascinating new work from Tomas Jenicek and Ondrej Chum at the Czech Technical University in Prague who have used a AI system to analyse how great artists were inspired by others. 

Their system looks at the way human figures are drawn across many paintings to see where artists were inspired, or indeed, borrowed from others. 

This is closely related to an everyday problem we face in assessing whether our clients' IP has been infringed. Has a competitor copied a trademark or design, or is it different enough to qualify as a new design? 

We have developed our own machine learning technology to find and assess IP infringements. Do get in touch if you'd like to discuss.
