Detecting and visualising large scale colour trends
(with Lars Yencken)
In this talk we describe the adventures arising from our attempts to detect colour trends from millions of designs using Python Imaging library, SciPy, and a cast of helpers. Along the way, we'll consider what it means for a colour to be interesting, for two colours to be similar, and look at common uses of colour in designs.
