The Null Device
An eye for the ladies
A Scottish artificial intelligence lab has developed
a robot with an eye for the ladies
. The robot, nicknamed Doki, can identify male and female faces by appearance, and as a side effect, can calculate how physically attractive female faces are. (Mind you, this assumes that attractiveness is exclusively a factor of femininity of appearance, a somewhat simplistic model.) I wonder if (a) it would be fooled by transvestites, and (b) whether it gives a readout in
millihelens (the unit of beauty required to launch one ship).
