Israeli researchers have made a remarkable beauty breakthrough, but it’s not a new face cream or surgical technique. Instead, they have taught a computer to recognize female attractiveness.

Initially, people were asked to rate the beauty of 100 different female faces on a scale of 1 to 7. Researchers then used the computer to map the faces mathematically, also taking into account symmetry, hair color, and skin texture. This allowed the computer to learn the relation between the people’s ratings and the faces’ features. When it was shown a new set of faces, it gave beauty scores similar to what people gave.

The scientists may attempt to technologically define male beauty next, but they say it will be far more difficult due a wider range of opinions about what makes a man physically attractive.
