Hi guys, I've been thinking about trying to use a camera (like a cell phone's) to be able to recognize pieces of art in museums to bring up information about the work, kind of like the entries in wikiart. would you be interested in a collaboration?
on my end, I would need access to the entire database of images in order to match the image to the artwork. I have a sense that the computer vision problem is relatively straightforward due to the 2D nature of artwork compared to general object recognition problems, and I would imagine that my app would symbiotically drive more traffic to wikiart.
Please let me know what you think, as it would be tremendously helpful for my project to have an existing database to work with.
