Founding and building sight.io has been a fantastic journey and that journey will continue in a big way. We are pleased to share that we have been acquired by EyeEm, a Berlin-based company that has built an amazing photography and community-centric platform on iOS, Android and the web.
We would like to thank Prof. Sabine Susstrunk, all our mentors and advisors for helping sight.io get to this point and for supporting our future goals, now aligned with EyeEm.
While we cannot share exactly what we will be working on, it is safe to say that a lot of the core principles and technology built over the past few years at sight.io will make an appearance on EyeEm.

We are trying to rank images using computational aesthetics! Beauty is an important criteria for our perception of images. Our motive is to bring to you the most beautiful picture given your query.

Digital cameras can be a thought of as a light capturing device. For some reason, certain combination of pixel values can enthrall us. In fact, there is a pattern to our likeliness. We are using smart and clever algorithms to assess and predict these patterns!
