This neural network app will tell you how beautiful you are. How to figure out which selfie photo to post on Instagram if you took 10-20 photos at the same time, but with different emotions and poses? In this case, the HowСuteAmI application will help. Based on neural networks, it is able to determine how beautiful you are..

This neural network app will tell you how beautiful you are.  A photo.

The developer,used the Python language to train the neural network and a sample with labeled photographs of people, where their beauty is evaluated, it was collected at one of the universities in China. In total, there are not so many photographs in the sample – 5500 pieces. Of these, only 750 are Caucasoid faces, which is very few, but the application is already showing good results.

Based on a standard deviation of 0.64, the author of the material came to the conclusion that evaluators from a Chinese university almost always gave similar scores to different photos, which suggests that beauty is not individual and beauty parameters are approximately the same for all people, so you can approach this issue mathematically.

Next, he developed a neural network of 32 neurons that converts the feature vector of an image into a final score that describes the beauty of a person. He trained it on the basis of data from the University of China and got a working neuron. Alexander has developed a small HowСuteAmI Android application to quickly evaluate the application’s performance, and we have already tested it.

I would like to say right away that so far the application, at least in my case, does not work very well. The front camera of my device produces 10-20 megabytes of pictures, and the application crashes if I try to upload such a large photo, so I have to compress it.

What is the result? I tried some of my own images and photos of various people. The results are interesting, but not without questions. As for my photos, the application accurately rated them according to how I rated them myself, because a lot depends on the lighting and angle, and in this matter the application can accurately predict which photo from a selection of photos of one person will be the best . The maximum score that I managed to squeeze out is 7.5, on average my photos gain 5-7 points. At the same time, I don’t consider myself handsome, to be honest, and it’s very strange that, for example, Johnny Depp received such a low score, given that objectively he is a beautiful person.

The same goes for Angelina Jolie. Of course, she is beautiful, and I would give her 9-10 points, but the application thinks otherwise. Probably the reason is a small sample, 750 images of Caucasian faces are not enough for the application to accurately determine the beauty of a person.

It is still difficult to call the result final, but such a study says only one thing – the tastes of people in the world are similar, and it is possible that in the future, based on likes on photos, Facebook will be able to develop its own neural network and embed it in Instagram. In this case, before publishing, users can easily evaluate how successful the selfie turned out to be. And the quality of the assessment will be as objective as possible. It’s great when there are such applications and such developments. They make the world a better and, most importantly, more beautiful place.

It is interesting to know the opinion of our readers. How many points did you get?
