AI algorithm measures beauty, gives advice on how to improve your score
Beauty scoring algorithms look at images of your face to tell you how beautiful you are—or aren’t—and what you can do about it. They’re part of a growing industry of facial analysis tools driven by artificial intelligence, each claiming to parse an image for characteristics such as emotions, age, or even hotness.
Companies working on such technologies are darlings of venture capital, and such algorithms are used in everything from online cosmetic sales to dating apps. The proprietary nature of many of these systems means it is impossible to get insight into how they really work, how much they’re being used, or how they affect users.
