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?

there is already a website that has an algorithm that judges you on a point system by facial symmetry and proportion; its kinda interesting.

Women who are hot know it, and women who aren't "traditional" beauties know it too. (ugly narcissistic reality show stars don't count) Men however, all seem to think they are hot. Or at the very least, deserving of a hot girl.

i'd want to know, just out of curiosity- i think it is important though also to point out that some people are not photogenic. You can be gorgeous in person but sometimes that doesn't translate well to camera.
