Would You Want to Know If a Computer Thinks You're Pretty?

Would You Want to Know If a Computer Thinks You're Pretty?

And you thought you had enough issues with your looks: a grad student in Canada has programmed a computer that can evaluate human attractiveness.

If that weren't frightening enough — it judges you on a scale of 1-10 (thankfully, there doesn't seem to be anything about a bathing suit round). The evaluation is based on the core data, from volunteer students that submitted photos with people they judged attractive. The computer is now able to recognize the good-looking features and rate accordingly.

Though I will tell you right now that I would rather stick a toothpick in my eye than find out if a computer thinks I'm hot, I'd be lying a little. I'm curious. Now you, be honest: Would you want to know what the computer "thought" about you?
