Quantifying beautiful places and their link to health and happiness

Presented by: 
Suzy Moat University of Warwick, The Alan Turing Institute
Wednesday 9th September 2020 - 14:00 to 14:30
INI Seminar Room 1

Are beautiful environments good for our health and happiness? In this talk, I will describe how millions of ratings from an online game called ‘Scenic-or-Not’ and a mobile app called ‘Mappiness’ have begun to offer new answers to this age-old question. I will explain how deep learning can help us understand whether beautiful places are simply natural places - or whether humans might be able to build beautiful places too.
