Most images that are marked with the hashtag #WienLiebe contain elements that are associated with emotions of "love" - or at least with the idea of ​​romance. Even if these associations can be objectively attached to the visual content of the image, the viewer's perception is subjective and cannot be grasped by computers. The descriptions of the images (machine-generated tags) that translate pixels into code naturally exclude many associations and focus on the "objective" (computer-recognizable) content only.

The following pages include images that have been published under the hashtag #WienLiebe in which those elements, that evoke emotional reactions, are marked. These images are juxtaposed with snippets of code that contain machine-generated tags based on image recognition software.
