The researchers at Yahoo Labs in Barcelona claim they have created a machine learning algorithm that can distinguish beautiful portraits from ones that aren’t.

“Aesthetic score is related to sharpness of facial landmarks, image contrast, exposure, homogeneity, illumination pattern, uniqueness, and originality.”
The most important factor, according to the study, was sharpness and contrast between the face and background

Ricoh’s “Save The Memory” project has, to date, found and cleaned over 400,000 photos and returned over 90,000 of them to earthquake survivors to whom they belong.

When images are found, they are displayed initially in those locations, but then packed up and send to the project wharehouse where the technical stuff begins. Ricoh makes digital copiers, so a large and dedicated assembly line cleans each photo, hangs them individually to dry, then scans the images to convert them to digital files. Each is then remastered, and tagged with a specific ID number, then organized via region and notable feature for proper sorting and classification. At which point, the originals are packaged in protective bags and sent back to where they were found.

Discussion:
“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.” -Chuck Close

 Bald Eagle in Yellowstone - does it get more American than that? The national symbol in the first national park! This was a few days ago - today we saw a golden eagle and my favorite - Pronghorn Antelope - America's fastest land animal! It's been a good week ANDDDDD I get to do it all again with the 2nd tour. Yes I am lucky, yes I am living the dream and YES I worked hard to get here. I am working on a video about hustle, fear and dreams. By working I mean I have thought about it. And yes I like who I am and @nsharpes made me order TWO grande Margaritas - so that might be contributing to this monologue that I just subjected you all too. But honestly - you are cool! ~ Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 using MC11 adapter
 I said it before, I will say it again - Yellowstone NP in winter is a magical place - for most of the day we were the only ones in sight - in all directions!! It is an amazing experience and I spend most of the day grinning at the beauty, the uniqueness and my luck at being able to experience it all. I remember driving through Hayden Valley on my Summer 1994 road trip- Obviously the place stuck with me and to see it now, all covered in snow... #FNFantastic //And now The Fear by Lily Allen is stuck in my head. ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 70-200
