There is so much ART, but its actually limited. A computer could understand all of the art humanity has produced and analyze it down to its features. Color, stroke, contrast, characters, symbolism. All the symbolism that is produced for meaning can be interpreted.
Computers could understand the components that underline meaning in art. Computers have all of the historical context and relational knowledge to make connections people dont make. The internet’s resources provide all of the resources to interpret cultural value. Think about the biographical information about author. The social connections depicted in papers and history books. The cultural leaders of a time, the records of travel, the economic and social influences.
Does anyone know what field of academic study this would fall under?
