The First International Beauty Contest Judged by Artificial Intelligence
The science and beauty app behind this
What matters in beauty is perception. Perception is how you and other people see you, and this perception is almost always biased. Still, healthy people look more attractive despite their age and nationality.
This has enabled the team of biogerontologists and data scientists, who believe that in the near future machines will be able to get a lot of vital medical information about people’s health by just processing their photos, to develop a set of algorithms that can accurately evaluate the criteria linked to perception of human beauty and health where it is most important – the human face. But evaluating beauty and health is not enough. The team’s challenge is to find effective ways to slow down aging and help people look healthy and beautiful.
There were many attempts to do this in the past, but this time it will have a global impact because of the advances in deep learning, symbolic learning and massive semantic analysis.
In comes Beauty.AI 2.0, a platform, where human beauty is evaluated by a jury of robots and algorithm developers compete on novel applications of machine intelligence to perception.
