Connoisseur is a visual search engine that uses machine learning algorithms to act as an artificial intelligence art valuation expert for individuals pursuing the offloading of artwork they possess.
Connoisseur's algorithms assess the piece of artwork against market trends and similar artist to determine an opinion of its value. The artificial intelligence uses an image that has been uploaded by the potential seller to evaluate the age of the work, the artist school, integrity of the piece, and possible drawbacks. The sellers are also connected to potential buyers without having to go through auction houses, streamlining the process for the transaction.
Buyers can receive customized recommendations for art to buy through Connoisseur. The platform can show the buyers market trends and demands for such artwork. The independent valuation feature also aids buyers in knowing that they are securing a bias-free estimate.
