ADVERTISEMENT Using deep learning techniques, data scientists from Warwick Business School trained a computer system on 200,000 images from the website Scenic-or-Not, where members of the public vote on how beautiful a British scene is. These include Loch Scavaig on the Isle of Skye… and Newbury Road roundabout. Stunning ‘AI brain scans’ reveal what machines see as they learn new skills Stunning ‘AI brain scans’ reveal what machines see as they learn new skills The project was linked to earlier studies by the same team from Warwick’s Data Science Lab that showed a direct correlation between residing in a scenic location and good health. If the AI could recognise beauty like a human, city planning for wellbeing could potentially be automated. Deep learning essentially involves inundating a powerful system with labelled information, and waiting for it to make connections, categorise and sort data. In theory, it can then contextualise new scenes using that information. Such a model is designed to replicate, to a lesser extent, the connectivity of the human brain. The Warwick wanted an objective take on what…
