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.”

    Hot Spot: Sephora's New High-Tech Workshop

    Leave it to the city of San Francisco to get the most high-tech beauty experiences before the rest of us do: The 8,500 square feet store located at 33 Powell Street is re-opening November 20 as the first and only Sephora Beauty Tip (Teaching, Inspiration, and Play) Workshop, with over 13,000 products and interactive services. Like most beauty junkies, we’d happily spend a few hours slowly meandering through the selections at Sephora — maybe getting a touchup along the way — but this takes the beauty emporium straight into Willa Wonka territory. In addition to stations for trying new hair and makeup trends, here are the main features you should check out the next time you’re in San Francisco: The Beauty Workshop station at San Francisco’s Sephora Powell Street.

    Bank Accounts Beware: Facebook Is Making Online Shopping Even Easier

    Facebook’s ads already remind you of the Altuzarra dress that’s been sitting in your shopping cart for a few days, taunting you with reminders whenever you’re just trying to stalk your friends. Now, the social media site will play an even larger role in enabling your questionable shopping habits with a new bookmark featuring products to browse based on one’s “liked” pages.  Found for a small percentage of Facebook users in the United States under the “More” tab, the experience is part of the tech company’s efforts to get in on the e-commerce game. An internal survey suggested that nearly half of people come to the site looking for products, with a majority of them discovering new ones through the News Feed, Pages, and Groups.  The Shopping feed will act as a home for a variety of brands to showcase their offerings. "We’re looking to give people an easier way to find products that will be interesting to them on mobile, make shopping easier and help businesses drive sales,“ said Emma Rodgers, Facebook’s head of product marketing for commerce.

    Kendall Jenner’s Calvin Klein Billboard Vandalized by a Drone

    Kendall Jenner’s Calvin Klein Billboard Vandalized by a Drone For months now, as I walk to and from the subway on my commute I’ve been forced to face Justin Bieber’s tatted-up biceps on a billboard (which, wasn’t too bad, because even though I’m ashamed to admit this, I’m a total Belieber). Just assuming it was time for a switch, I didn’t expect to discover that, like me, someone else had dreams of destroying the poster—only this person actually followed through.   In the early hours on Wednesday, street artist Katsu used a drone to spray paint the Calvin Klein Jeans for Opening Ceremony sign. “It’s exciting to see its first potential use as a device for vandalism.” The illegal act took less than a minute to complete and a similarly short amount of time for Calvin Klein to print out another massive image of Jenner to plaster up on the corner of Houston and Lafayette in downtown Manhattan.

    The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: Apple Watch Reviews Are In

    Fashion’s main concern with the Apple Watch is how it looks—and the industry bestowed its aesthetic blessing months ago. Fashion photographer David Sims lensed the campaign, which debuted in Vogue, and now we can turn to less important things prettiness. They’re generally positive: Style.com’s Nicole Phelps writes, “Its real potential probably lies in the way it can simplify things.” She used the GPS technology, which would tap her on the wrist one way for right, another for left, to get around Tulum on a family vacation last week in Mexico. Our own David Pogue writes on Yahoo Tech, “The Apple Watch answers the question, “Why would anyone want a smartwatch?” Citing that most people pull out their phone nearly 100 times per day, he says the watch acts like “a filter.” Instead of keeping your phone in front of your face, you can glance at the watch and see if whatever it’s alerting you to is actually worth your time in that moment.
