Artsy - Art History meets Computer Science

Artsy is a startup pioneering art-based search. Powered by what they refer to as "The Art Genome Project", they code different characteristics (called "genes") of significant works of art and use algorithms to create new 'pathways' for discovering art.

"Users can discover works through connections between art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities, creating infinite serendipitous opportunities for discovery and learning."

Definitely worth checking out!
