Rembrandt’s artwork, The Night Watch (formally titled The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch or Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banning Cocq– that’s a long one), now has a 717-billion-pixel digital twin thanks to Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum efforts. 

The digital copy of the 1642 artwork was done by the museum’s  “Operation Night Watch” research team. According to AP News, “the team laser-scanned the surface of the painting, fine-tuned focus before every shot, and used a neural network to ensure optimal color and sharpness for each exposure.”
