 History of Art:Romanticism - Gothic Revival
In 1772, the young Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), a law student at Strasbourg, wrote an essay on German art and dedicated it to the memory of Erwin von Steinbach, one of the builders of Strasbourg Cathedral.
The architectural movement most commonly associated with Romanticism is the Gothic Revival, a term first used in England in the mid-19th century to describe buildings being erected in the style of the Middle Ages and later expanded to embrace the entire Neo-Gothic movement.
Thomas Warton, poet and critic, acquired his interest in the Middle Ages from architecture and, in his work on medieval English cathedrals and churches, connected theliterary aspect of the Gothic Revival with the work that was begun by a group of antiquaries in the late 17th century and that was continued into the 18th.

In order to deliver the promise of Moore’s Law to the end user, compilers must make decisions that are intimately tied to a specific target architecture.
As engineers add architectural features to increase performance, systems become harder to model, and thus, it becomes harder for a compiler to make effective decisions.
Because learning techniques can effectively make sense of high dimensional spaces, they can be a valuable tool for clarifying and discerning complex decision boundaries.
