Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We have previously proposed a method for estimating the attractiveness of a food photo in order to assist a user to shoot attractive food photos. In this method, image features were extracted from food photos with attractiveness scores, and the attractiveness score of an input food photo was estimated in a regression framework. In this report, we describe the result of constructing an attractiveness estimator using a convolutional neural network (CNN) as a new approach to this method. Specifically, CNNs which transfer-learned each of the pre-trained models of VGG16, ResNet50 and Inception-v3 is constructed and used as an attractiveness estimator. From the results compared with the previous method, we confirmed that the attractiveness estimator based on the VGG16 pre-trained model was effective.
