I have a database of around 10,000 instruments containing maker name, instrument type, location made, year built, year sold, price sold, and photos of the instrument. I have so far calculated the inflation rate for instruments of different type, value, and age from auction data of instruments that have been publicly sold multiple times. My interests are twofold: one is to integrate statistics into the history of the violin trade. The other is to apply to a branch of computer science to predict the price of instruments based on only a photo of the instrument. The process of creating such a database was excruciating. I may release it later after I am done testing it for its accuracy. My unfinished website can be viewed here: instrumentappraiser.com . The end website should predict the quality of an instrument solely based off photos. It will never be perfect, but could serve as a spam identifier or have some other unknown purpose. A couple interesting graphs and charts can be viewed here. https://violinsarecool.wordpress.com/home/history-of-violin-trade/ https://violinsarecool.wordpress.com/home/violin-inflation-statistics/ My questions are the following: if one was to have a database of the entire violin trade, what would one do with it? What are unanswered questions in the violin trade that could be solved with data? Does anyone else have interest in helping me in this project. Attached below is a compressed file of what I have accomplished so far. snippets.zip
