1. Researchers at MIT computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory (CSAIL), developed a system, called ‘time craft’. 2. The system takes the image of a finished painting and analyzes how it was likely to have been originally created. 3. To develop the ‘timecraft’ system, the team at MIT CSAIL utilized more than 200 existing time-lapse videos of both digital and watercolor paintings. 4. With the help of an online survey and willing participants, they found that for 90% of the time ‘timecraft’ generated a more realistic time-lapse video in comparison to existing systems.
