The future is here. Robots are known for their mechanical abilities - for being precise, consistent and very objective. In contrast when it comes to appreciating beauty, art and aesthetics, their silicon brains fail to comprehend it. Well, not anymore. Luckily, the wizard scientists at Beauty.ai have come up with a solution. And like seemingly every solution these days, it's robots. The pageant, called Beauty.ai, is organised by the Youth Laboratories collective, a team of biogerontologists (scientists who study ageing) and data scientists. They've teamed up with science and tech companies including Microsoft to test the idea.
The premise is simple - contestants send in selfies through the Beauty.ai app. These are processed by Beauty.ai's three-member robot jury. The robots evaluate the contestants' selfies, judging features like skin colour, tone, symmetry, signs of ageing and the beauty and health criteria that we normally use to judge attractiveness, according to Times of India.
