Emily L. Spratt (born April 27, 1984) is an American art historian, curator, critic, and strategic advisor. She is known for her work on Byzantine and Post-Byzantine art, cultural heritage preservation, and the use of machine learning and vision technology in the arts.[1]

She did undergraduate studies at Cornell University, followed by an M.A. in Byzantine Art History at the University of California, Los Angeles, and an M.A. in Renaissance and Baroque Art History at Princeton University.[2] Her Ph.D. at Princeton University under Professor Patricia Fortini Brown and Professor Slobodan Ćurčić is on the legacy and representation of Byzantium[3] in the Early Modern Period. Spratt has taught in the Department of Art History and the Program in Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies at Rutgers University and has previous work experience at the former Hellenic Ministry of Culture.

Spratt is considered an authority on the intersection of art, society, and artificial intelligence,[4][5][6][7] and was the honorary guest editor for the special magazine edition on computers and art for the Association of Computing Machinery.[8][9]

In October 2017, she curated “Unhuman: Art in the Age of AI”[10] in Frankfurt and Los Angeles. As a fellow at The Frick Collection[11] she organized (with her colleagues) the symposium titled “Searching Through Seeing: Optimizing Computer Vision Technology for the Arts,” for which she gave the keynote address.[12]

Spratt also received a notable award from the Hellenic Ministry of Culture for her work at the Byzantine and Christian Museum of Athens.[13]
