Software that reveals which paintings are authentic

Quote
Spotting a forged painting is a laborious process, typically involving hours of painstaking analysis by art experts. But a computer programme could slash the time it takes by spotting the telltale patterns and techniques used by individual artists.
Using high-resolution scans of paintings, the Authentic software builds up a library of characteristics, such as brushstrokes, colours and type of canvas used, that form a "fingerprint" for a particular artist. A painting can then be compared against this fingerprint to help experts decide whether it is a fake.
