Can Machines See The Invisible?

In this talk we will explore the invisible side of visual data, investigating how machine learning can detect subjective properties of images and videos, such as beauty, creativity, sentiment, style, and more curious characteristics. We will see the impact of such detectors in the context of web and social media. And we will analyse the precious contribution of computer vision in understanding how people and cultures perceive visual properties, underlining the importance of feature interpretability for this task.
