A picture says more than a thousand words.
But which words? What do images convey? How can we automate the deciphering the meaning from images? And how can we transform the emotional payload that images convey from unstructured heavy data to compact, rich, useful, structured data (and onwards from there to insights)?
The answer will require some experts in the art of semiotics. Or should that be ‘wizards of the dark art’ of semiotics?
How Signoi’s work with Pinterest revealed the hidden dimensions of images that inspire or repel people.
Our development of an image-based “Inspiration Algorithm” influenced the entire company’s content strategy.
So what comes next for AI visual analytics, especially in the new world of generative AI?
P.S. For a taste of quantitative semiotics in the context of recent social media upheavals, I recommend this recent blog post on Signoi’s website.
