Analyzing Beauty by Building Custom Profiles Using Machine Learning
Instead of tackling what is universal beauty, we propose to attempt to create profiles based on training data for individual understanding of beauty, while maintaining efficiency. This paper describes a fully functional software system called TBeauty that creates an individual machine-learning algorithm based off a profile to allow users to get an accurate assessment of what they would classify and score beauty. The system would take data and use facial landmarks in order to assess this. The system can be changed to allow automatic search of new images to proactively select the ones that have high scores for any individual user. The project uses an existing 68-point landmark detection algorithm proposed by Rainer Lienhart to identify the facial landmark points (a so-called facial mask) from images that will be fed into various machine-learning algorithms. The software is available on GitHub
