Finding Art

October 11, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Services such as Netflix and Pandora have revolutionized how we consume movies and music. Now one company is trying to do the same for art. Melena Ryzik reported:

  • If you go to Netflix then it recommends other movies for you to watch based on your preferences. Currently there’s nothing similar for art: a site which can recommend other pieces of art for you to enjoy based on recorded preferences.
  • is aiming to fill this gap. It has worked with various museums and institutions to put together some of the world’s most famous art.
  • Each piece of art is rated on a scale of 1-100 on various categories such as “Renaissance”. Algorithms then use this information and information about your preferences to recommend art work.
