Brief description of project: 
ARTigo is an outcome of the five years research project play4science. Since the project’s beginning in 2007, ARTigo collects semantic data on artworks from the footprints left by players of games featuring artwork images. From these footprints and relying on an original higher-order latent semantic analysis conceived for the purpose, ARTigo automatically builds an artwork search engine.
