So if you have an image that is part of your theme for a green skin, and then you use Photoshop to change its colour spectrum into red tones and another for blue tones. Or if you crop and only use 90% of the original image, how is a bunch of formulas going to realise that they are all they same pic, little lone compare it to any other image and discern which is better design?
Only a minutely small percentage of people have the ability to be creative and that percentage varies between cultures. That being said, a machine hasn't a hope in hell of judging good design. Ok, so a clever bunny might think that such a thing, however complex, can always be programmed. If that was the case then after more than 2 decades of such brilliance one would expect to see software able to correctly space the text in headlines. But that's not the case because if machine spacing was as good as what a typographer can produce, then you wouldn't see errors in almost every company logo that has been produced since commercial artists moved to computers.
