NESP TWQ Round 3 - Project 3.2.3 - Monitoring aesthetic value of the GBR by using artificial intelligence to score photos and videos

This project addresses the urgent need to understand and monitor the aesthetic value of the Great Barrier Reef. Focusing on the fast-changing underwater systems of the Reef, this research will use advanced technology (including eye tracking and heart rate measurement) to elicit what environmental and experiential attributes contribute to aesthetic value. A Big Data platform using artificial intelligence will be created to assess large volumes of visitorsupplied imagery and to map aesthetic value across space and time.

More details about this project can be found on the Monitoring the Great Barrier Reef Griffith Inititue for Tourism website.
