Researchers aim to find out where the happiest and most peaceful places in London are by crowdsourcing images of the capital.
“With a comprehensive list of aesthetic virtues at hand, we would be more likely to systematically understand and recreate the environments we intuitively love,” said lead researcher Daniele Quercia, from Cambridge University’s Computing Laboratory. (…)
The long-term plan is that the site can start to offer personalised recommendations of city spaces. Users will also be able to upload and tag pictures of their own “happy spaces” to create what the researchers describe as “like a dating website that matches Londoners to their most suitable urban oasis”.
