Estimation of price point an art work would most likely be sold at.

Proposed Solution

This project was created with the intent of helping artist appraise their artwork.

In this project i have created a neural network to predict or estimate how much an art work would be sold at. You wold need basically a picture of dimesnsion 200x200 as the input to the system. Over the course of time if i get the chance i will make significant improvements to the system, because i believe the better the quality of the image provided to thye system the better the predictions will get.

The currency of appraisal is in euros. It works in a similar way to most of the image recognition systems however in this case I am hoping the A.i is able to identify similarities between images of diffrent artist that have the same price and estimate how much another image would be sold for. The categories in this case are spicific, there are 742 categories each representing diffrent price point as seen in the price folder. The neural network was trained om over 5,000 images of diffrent artwork although a large constituent of these are paintings.

The finished product for this project is to be a windows, .exe file, an android and iOS app. The hackathon for which this project is made is coming to an end in 7 days so i am a little bit rushed and i might only be able to make the neural net.

Good News

I have succesfully trained a neural network to predict the price points of the diffrent paintings, however I used a pretrained model which is ResNet50, partly because i wanted to cut down training time and because except i have more time the only suitable model achitecture i can use is keras tuner and i don't run a gpu. I have made the files available on a folder in my google cloud here is the link (Fair warning it is 485 mb). I will make the traing file avalable here so fine tuning can be made, based on my training if you desire.
