Seminar: Computational Aesthetics - Computers and Art

Module Description

Object of this seminar is to discuss some methods for quantifying the term of beauty in various artistic areas. Thereby we will analyse how aesthetics can be understood in numerical meaning and research which existing methods for quantifying beauty already exist. In this context one will process several papers.
