[D] I have this wild idea for dating site that’s only for attractive people, using eigenfaces (it has a million other uses!)
We all know about eigenfaces, alright? How about we take a picture of some people whom we know everyone agrees on their attractiveness, make an eigenface for both men and women amongst them, then ask people to send in a driver’s license photo (WHAT ARE THEY CALLED?) and when they do, match it with the eigenface. If they are attractive, the alpha or whatever will be positive. Hence only allowing attractive people to become a member of that website. It will also serve as a website to help people know if they are attractive. Of course there are intricacies, such as race and age, but we’ll overcome them. This algorithm can be used by casting agents to “poll” if someone is beautiful and attractive. It has millions of uses.
I think the worst problem we face is fiducial point detection… I don’t personally know how to automatically detect fiducial points, and if we let people do it themselves they might cheat.
So what do you think guys? Doable?
