Summary

Together with the progress made in the field of Artificial Intelligence, a new question arises: will A.I. algorithms manage to be as creative as humans are? Being that we consider art as being one of the most specific human abilities, it confers weight to the issue at hand: Can Artificial Intelligence create art?

I chose the approach of deconstructing the characteristics contained by a good photography collection and teaching them to an image processing Artificial Intelligence algorithm. As a source of photography I used Google’s Street View service, by retrieving various GPS points and processing the surroundings in the view line. Using various techniques, I made it either look around for a good shot or go finding another place.

I then performed a number of test on the processed results and proceeded to automate the script for posting images that passed the quality threshold on Twitter under the name Streetstagram. Based on various feedback I received on the images, together with my own observations, I modified the script into it’s final form which will make the subject of this article.
