Dezeen Wire: researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris have designed software that can look at a photo and identify the city in which it was taken by recognising building typologies.
The software uses images extracted from Google Street View to cross-reference architectural elements like balconies, windows and street signs and identify patterns unique to particular locations.
