Recently, there is a rising interest in perceiving image aesthetics. The existing works deal with image aesthetics as a classification or regression problem. To extend the cognition from rating to reasoning, a deeper understanding of aesthetics should be based on revealing why a high- or low-aesthetic score should be assigned to an image. From such a point of view, the authors propose a model referred to as Neural Aesthetic Image Reviewer, which can not only give an aesthetic score for an image, but also generate a textual description explaining why the image leads to a plausible rating score. Specifically, they propose three models based on shared aesthetically semantic layers and task-specific embedding layers at a high level for performance improvement on different tasks. To facilitate researches on this problem, they collect the AVA-Reviews dataset, which contains 52,118 images and 312,708 comments in total. Through multi-task learning, the proposed models can rate aesthetic images as well as produce comments in an end-to-end manner. It is confirmed that the proposed models outperform the baselines according to the performance evaluation on the AVA-Reviews dataset. Moreover, they demonstrate experimentally that the authors’ model can generate textual reviews related to aesthetics, which are consistent with human perception.
