Beauty is in the eye of...the computer?

Mirror_mirror University of Technology Sydney computer scientists Hatice Gunes and Massimo Piccardi have created computer software that can distinguish a pretty face from an ugly one.

Using facial measurements related to the ratios and images of over 200 women (including Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss, and Catherine Zeta Jones), the software can scan the image of a woman's face and rate it on a scale of 1-10.

While this could add a whole new spin to Hot or Not, the creators say they hope to limit their software's usage to medical professionals under supervised conditions (to avoid vulnerable teenage girls getting their hands on it).

No word yet on when the men get to participate in this vanity game.
