An open letter to the inventors of Acquine
Hello Prof. Wang, I just stumbled upon your website Acquine (http://acquine.alipr.com/). The aesthetical evaluation of photography by a machine learning system is, without contest, the worst idea I have ever seen in this area of work. And believe me, I have seen some very bad ideas in my time. This whole enterprise and the world-view in implies is an embarrassment to Artificial Intelligence...
Rate your pictures... with a machine.

iansanity: lookforlight: stuartforsyth: Parting question before sleep: 5D mk II or D700? I’m going for a mk II, but only because I like Canon’s menu system. The Nikon is slightly cheaper overall. They’re both amazing. Going for Canon because of the menu system… that’s original. I love my D700. It’s a friendly machine, unlike the Olympus E-520 which was a bitch to deal...

fromme-toyou: These days, we love our digital cameras. They give us the freedom to explore photography as never before. We get instant feedback on our photographic experiments and find out what works and what doesn’t; we can easily manipulate the results and correct our blunders; and to ensure we don’t miss a shot, we shoot all the pictures our memory cards will hold. When we are done, we pack...
