    Facebook/Beauty.AI It’s no secret that beauty is subjective. But, what is surprising, is that it’s taken this long for scientists to come up with a non-subjective means of measuring it.  “Artificial intelligence systems have already surpassed humans in image recognition, and it is only a matter of time before robots will be able to evaluate human visual appeal, engage in fashion design, and even make perfumes,” said Alexey Shevtsov, the co-founder of Youth Laboratories collective in a press release.  “We decided to build a platform which will help bridge some of the most advanced humans - those who are interested in robot opinion and those developers, who are building intelligent systems to understand the beauty function.”
