"Currently, one important field on machine learning is Urban Perception Computing is to model the way in which humans can interact and understand the environment that surrounds them. This process is performed using convolutional models to learn and identify some insights which define the concept of perception of a place (e.g. a street image). One approach of this field is urban perception of street images, we will focus on this approach to study the safety perception of a city and try to explain why and how the perception can be predicted by a mathematical model. As result, we present an analysis about the influence and impact of the visual components on the safety criteria and also an explanation about why a certain decision on the perception of the safety of the streets, such as safe or unsafe. © 2021, Springer Nature Switzerland AG"
