If you're struggling to decide if that selfie really would make the perfect profile picture, then help is at hand. However unlike a sympathetic pal or tactful partner, you might not always like this app's answer. OK, and Nice to Hot, Stunning and Godlike, and the tool also estimates the age of the person photographed. The algorithm is trained on pictures of mostly Swiss citizens, so "in other parts of the world the perception might be very different". In a bid to test out the effectiveness of the app, we tried running a few celebrity images through its rating system - and the results are rather surprising. The world's highest-paid supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, came out with a middling Hot rating, though the app guessed she was five years younger than her actual age.
First, let me begin with the fact that I love apps. In fact, I am probably addicted to them. I frequent the app store like a chef frequents the produce aisle. I look for apps to help me be more efficient in my work, apps to get healthy, and apps that inspire and challenge me to to learn and grow. One of those apps is Hot or Not , an app that allows girls or guys to upload their photos and have hundreds or even thousands of others rate their physical appearance.
Hot or Not is a rating site that allows users to rate the attractiveness of photos submitted voluntarily by others. The site offers a matchmaking engine called 'Meet Me' and an extended profile feature called "Hotlists". The domain hotornot.
Simply upload your photo, and the program will guess your age and rate your attractiveness as one of the following: hmm…O. Try your photo here. For example, I uploaded three photos of myself and saw three different ratings. Despite this, everyone is still rushing to upload their photos and take the test. When I first attempted, the site was so overloaded I got an error message.
