Spontana app lets people rate your selfies

Its deemed a mix between Instagram and Tinder – an app that lets people rate each other’s selfies, all while finding a date.

Called Spontana, users upload a picture of themselves that is rated by ‘community of people helping each other look attractive’.

If two users give each other’s selfies a high rating, they will then have the ability to contact one another – similar to Tinder’s swipe model.

Its deemed a mix between Instagram and Tinder – an app that lets people rate other users’ selfies, all while finding a date. Called Spontana, users upload a picture of themselves and receive ratings from a ‘community of people helping each other look attractive’

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Users take a selfie and upload it to Spontana.

Between 30 seconds and a minute later the ratings will start coming in.

Spontana has also put together a leader board, allowing users to see who is deemed the fairest of them all.

While rating others in the app, you will have the ability to check out their social media profiles on other platforms.

Users can also save their selfies in an in-app gallery.

In Spontana, each one of your images is evaluated by 12 random users according to a 10-point scale – you also have the opportunity to judge other people’s selfies.

The app refers to itself as a mashup between Instagram and Tinder, as users are able to communicate with each other on the platform if they like one another’s photos.

And since the entire focus is on looks, it seems only fitting that dating would be added to the mix.

For instance, if someone rates your photo as highly as you rated theirs, the app will open up a way for you to communicate, reports Daniel Cooper with Engadet.

And between 30 seconds and a minute later will receive a single rating.

However, two of the lowest ratings are omitted in order to avoid the influence of random or irresponsible ratings and the remaining 10 votes are summed up – the highest possible rating is 100 points.

And the closer to 100 you get, the move visibility your photo gets in the app.

According to Engadget, a majority of Spontana’s users reside in Europe, including Space, Russia, Georgia and France – the app does highlight the location of each person on the platform.

A separate firm rolled out an AI that is capable of judging people’s selfies for a beauty contest.

The robot sifted through more than 6,000 selfies of individuals who live all over the world and range in ages of 18 to 69, and picked 44 winners in September.

But when the results came in, people felt like something was missing – it turned out the robots did not like people with dark skin.

Out of the 44 winners of the Beauty.AI beauty contest, nearly all were white.

A few of the winners were Asian, and only one had dark skin, which surprised those running the competition.

Although the majority of contestants were white, large groups from India and Africa also submitted photographs.

This could be why the algorithm picked mainly white people, the company said.

‘If you have not that many people of color within the dataset, then you might actually have biased results,’ Alex Zhavoronkov, chief science officer of Beauty.AI, told The Guardian.

‘When you’re training an algorithm to recognize certain patterns … you might not have enough data, or the data might be biased.’

The majority, 75 percent, of contest entrants were European and white.

Seven per cent were from India, and one percent were from the African continent.

The contest used five algorithms to evaluate youthfulness, face symmetry, skin and other parameters, and then compare them to models and actors in a database.
