If an artificial intelligence reviewed your favorite logo, how would that logo fare? now you can find out with Logo Rank, a nifty tool by the guy behind Brandmark.
As with any AI, the sensibilities of the programmer are baked into that learning, although he makes a case for the universality of the aestherics of a good logo:
