Google's AI can predict whether humans will like an image or not

The NIMA model eschews traditional approaches in favor a 10-point rating scale. A machine examines both the specific pixels of an image and its overall aesthetic. It then determines how likely any rating is to be chosen by a human. Basically, the AI tries to guess how much a person would like the picture. #SynaptechDigest

Google's AI researchers are teaching AI how to determine whether an image is aesthetically pleasing or not.

Have you seen the cool venue we have for Synaptech? It's called Kühlhaus Berlin, and as the name sounds, it's really a cool place. It was built in the early industrial age and it survived war and years of reconstructions, without losing its charm. In the past years, it has become a place for art, concerts and events and of course the home of Synaptech. Find more at http://www.kuehlhaus-berlin.com/
