An intelligent device rates images before shooting them.

Nadia is an aesthetics inference camera developed by Andrew Kupresanin and has the ability to infer the quality of the photo before shooting it and send it to the photographer as a feedback. The camera doesn’t have a display, but constantly sends updated messages about the aesthetic quality of the image as the photographer moves the camera around the object to be captured, helping  judge when to snap the photo.

Nadia uses a PyS60 script on a Nokia N73 cell phone, a Java App running on a Mac, and is build around an aesthetic quality inference engine called ACQUINE. The script takes the photo and sends it to the Java app to be uploaded to the ACQUINE engine which gives it a rating that is displayed on the phone’s camera.
