The last few years have seen great strides in the field of computer vision, but what comes next?

Can we teach AI to “feel” something about what it sees? The folks at Getty Images think we can.

At first blush, the idea that AI could “feel” something would seem to be pretty far-fetched. Feelings in general are closely intertwined with our human identities. How any one person feels about something is bound to be different than how another feels. Feelings are, by definition, subjective. In fact, it’s tough to find a more subjective topic than “feelings.” So how does that mesh with the objective functionality of computers?

The solution is relatively straightforward, according to Andrea Gagliano, a senior data scientist with Getty Images.
