Flickr blog: we reached 6,000,000,000 images
Flickr groups is a great resources for researching contemporary visual culture and media. Currently we are analyzing 167,000 images from Art Now group and 177,000 images from Graphic Design group. Each image is processed by a computer which generates 400 separate descriptions of its various properties. Next, we use our custom visualization software to map all images according to their properties. We hope to post some visualizations next week.
