The Business Problem
Hugo met Francis at Summit Tulum in 2017. Founded ArtAdvisor, which was acquired by Artsy. Currently is the Chief Data Scientist for Artsy. The problem Hugo had is he need to clean large data sets to help build Artsy’s database and train their algorithms, but had no good way to get them cleaned fast. He used Mechanical Turk before, but didn’t like the complexity/time required to set-up the task, the variable quality of the output, and the cost.
