Software spots female beauty, but we can already do that

Who’s the most beautiful woman in the world? Now there’s a computer program that can decide that for us, once and for all. Tel Aviv University student Amit Kagian concocted software that does an uncanny job of predicting which faces will be deemed the most beautiful by most people.

It uses 98 parameters that showed up in the faces ranked most beautiful by 30 test subjects, including facial symmetry, hair color, skin texture, and deviation from what was determined to be an “average face.” We found it odd that the software was only adept at spotting beauty in females, and is clueless when it comes to good-looking guys. Could it be that different?

Another missing link: a copy of the software so we could try it out ourselves. Of course, we’re all gorgeous around here, but we just wanted to know how our girlfriends/wives match up with the woman many think is the world’s most beautiful, Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, pictured above.
