See No Evil — Real Life
"There is a house on Street View that Google has deemed impossible. 2207 Seymour Ave, in Cleveland, Ohio, was the four-story unit where Ariel Castro kept and tortured three women from 2002 to 2013, until Amanda Berry managed to escape and alert neighbors to their captivity. The acts that Castro committed were so heinous that a controlled demolition of the building was required in his plea bargain. A former neighbor told the Guardian that razing the house was important to show “that monster … is behind bars and that he’s never going to get out.”

On Street View, the block remains frozen in the year 2009. The image was taken while the crime was still taking place, and although an early screengrab circulating on message boards shows a house with boarded windows, Street View now blurs the house beyond recognition as a thing of brick and mortar. (..)

Clicking up and down the unpopulated block, you have that exact sense of being unhelpful and alone in your terrible knowledge of what is happening right in front of you. It’s 2018; it happened. It’s 2009; it’s happening. The survivors of Castro’s violence remain in that blur on Seymour Ave, where you cannot see them, they cannot see you, and neither of you can offer each other comfort."

Building the map of Canada’s north
In the winter, the sun barely scrapes the horizon in Canada’s high north. The average lows hover in the -30s, roads are covered in snow and polar bear sightings aren’t uncommon. For those who call Canada’s arctic home, winter is a way of life. And the only way to truly understand it, as one resident put it to us, is to see it for yourself.

Firenze11/cv_streetview: Deep Learning for Recognizing Cities from their Google Street View Images
The goal of this research project is to evaluate how well cities/districts can be characterized by their visual properties using the readily available city imaginary data set provided by Google street view.

In order to find out the image features that would affect a deep learning algorithm to distinguish between different cities, we trained several image categorization neural networks using AlexNet and VGG-S CNN structures, and analyzed the visual clues that helps the algorithm make categorization decisions. We found out that the algorithm precisely grasps the differences between different city types, and has almost 92% accuracy* on test set for the best model.

As an exploration of latent urban characteristics that can be reflected in the visual aspect, the research proposes an alternative paradigm of computational urban morphological research where environmental affordances revealed in streetlevel urban imagery are taken into consideration.
