PARIS, Oct. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The proprietary metadata accumulated by Artprice, the world leader in Art Market Information since 1999, is now available to Artmarket.com. Having extended its corporate purpose, Artmarket.com announces, among other initiatives, an industrial partnership with Vahumana, Groupe TRSb, a European Leader in Artificial Intelligence.
The aim of Artmarket is to structurally modify the Art Market at a time when Sotheby's is entering the digital age with Patrick Drahi at the helm and Christie's is actively preparing its own 4.0 revolution in response.
Thanks to its famous Artprice Econometrics department, Artmarket.com enjoys the benefits of an "Innovative Company" status, a State label awarded by France's Public Investment Bank (BPI) which is fully intent on supporting this project.
thierry Ehrmann: "Artmarket.com is practically the only listed company on a regulated market (Euronext Paris) whose sole purpose is to generate billions (annually) of proprietary and standardized metadata on a market that has been effectively global for centuries. It also stores and processes in real time – via Artificial Intelligence and Big Data – billions of incoming logs, either free or paid, per year."
Artmarket's databanks manage terabytes of information on proprietary-designed processors running algorithms and AI programs that can translate the millions of contacts that Artmarket.com has accumulated via Artprice over 20 years into customers, in strict compliance with the regulations in force in each country.
By the end of 2019, our new partnership with VaHumana will enable Artmarket to model fully-paid custom products and services for the millions of art collectors and professionals who until now have not found responses completely adapted to their highly specific needs via a standard Artprice subscription.
In parallel, Artmarket.com's AI exploitation of billions of past logs will have the effect of dragging the Art Market out of its lethargy… a lethargy dominated by academic references dating back to the beginning of the last century, become the Art Market's default references, and which today, as the market switches to all-digital to catch up with the mobile Internet and its 4.5 billion users (in 4G, Wi-Fi / fiber and ultra high speed 5G), appear totally anachronistic.
Artmarket.com will therefore soon be offering a range of paid products and services directly generated by AI and Big Data and which will be offered first and foremost to its 6300 partner Auction Houses via its proprietary Intranet to support them in the digital era. These products and services will be based on a complete redefinition of the Art Market's segments and 'clusters' that is coherent with the reality of the 21st century Art Market, and they will give our clients a very substantial and invaluable competitive advantage.
