Devices are so advanced they can extract vital medical information about a patient’s health by processing photos and developing algorithms to accurately and minutely evaluate specific criteria linked to perceptions of human beauty and health. According to Futurist Dr. James Lovelock, we are entering a new age, known as Novacene, a time in which humans may be eclipsed by intelligent machines.
But can machine learning and artificial intelligence understand beauty? More importantly, can machines make us more beautiful? Personal assistants like Siri and Alexa have already made artificial intelligence a part of our daily lives. Artificial Intelligence is the development of technology that aims to allow machines, computers and software to mimic human thought and intelligence. AI is already starting to make things easier for consumers. AI is defined by Webster’s dictionary as: (a) a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers, and (b) the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. One particular branch of AI-machine learning helps understand images and text. AI is certainly big business.
