Description

Birkhoff's aesthetic measure is expressed as \(M=O/C\) Where M is the aesthetic measure, O is the order of the image and C is its complexity. For this function we use the entropy of the image as the order and the ratio of its uncompressed and compressed sizes (using the gzip compression algorithm) as its complexity.
