EyeEm Let an AI Pick Their Top Photos of 2016, It Chose These

What’s your computer’s favorite photo? It seems like a ridiculous question, but EyeEm recently asked their AI something similar. Since no single human could possibly go through the millions of images uploaded to their service last year, EyeEm let their special EyeEm Vision AI pick the Top Photos of 2016.

“EyeEm Vision imitates the curation expertise of professional photographers,” says Computer Vision Engineer Gökhan. “Our deep learning technology unravels this expertise using a large collection of amazing photographs.”

Imitates is the key word there, and we’ll let you be the judge of how close this computer vision software comes to approximating something as subjective as aesthetics. For our part, we’re just amazed at how far the study of “computer vision” has come. What started with recognizing basic properties like “this is a photo of a tree” has evolved to the point where it can judge how “good” that photo is. Crazy.
