Abstract

A method and system is disclosed for cognitively identifying and comparing characteristics such as, but not limited to, style, techniques and materials of an artifact such as, but not limited to, painting, literary work and handicrafts with a repository for determining a lineage such as, but not limited to, original creator/author, age and year of artifact.

Method and System for Using Cognitive Recognition for Categorization and Discovery of Artistic Works

Consider a scenario in which a person finds a cheap painting at a thrift store or at a yard sale and later the person comes to find out that the painting is an important work that is worth much more than they paid for it. Consider another scenario, where in some television shows a person brings some old antiques to a show for expert assessment and finds out that they had indeed accidentally purchased something that is valuable. Sometimes these persons are truly hunting for something valuable but most of the time it is just luck. There are currently limited ways in which a person can discover or identify that they have stumbled upon something that is potentially valuable. Today even the persons who are looking for these artifacts use clues such as an exquisite frame for example on a painting or a parched piece of paper with an old form of the language for something written or it could be some numbering or signature on a ceramic plate and so on. The challenge is that the person must know something or recognize something as potentially valuable. Further authentication techniques such as thermoluminescence, dendrochronology, and carbon 14 dating are widely used as secondary tools in specialized labs. However, there is a need for a primary discovery facilitation hence the proposal for method and system for cognitively identifying characteristics and patterns that can be matched to something else and therefore instruct about potential relationships to other objects, paintings, writings and other artifacts that are known to be valuable.

Disclosed is a method and system for cognitively identifying and comparing characteristics such as, but not limited to, style, techniques and materials of an artifact such as, but not limited to, painting, literary work and handicrafts with a repository for determining a lineage such as, but not limited to, original creator/author, age and year of artifact. The repository contains data of all possible artifacts from multiple sources such as, but not limited to, social media, blog and websites.

In accordance with the method and system, a repository is maintained in real-time. The repository contains various types of details of multiple known/unknown interpolated/extrapolated versions of artifacts such as, but not limited to, paintings, literary work and handicrafts. The details contains data such as, but not limited to, artist/author, time period/epoch, style, stroke, penmanship, gauge distribution, techniques and materials. The repository is created from various sources such as, but not limited to, social media, blog and websites and cognitively updated in a real-time. The method a...
