all inclusive beauty

Racist Robots?

I’m sure some of you have read posts about the beauty pageant judged by a panel of robots that wound up favoring light skinned people. Well it’s floating around again, and many uninformed bloggers are using this story to support the delusion of universal preferences.

I would just like anyone offended by all this to know that the human folks at Youth Laboratories, who created the algorithms used to determine winners, did NOT use data that included all minorities when establishing the standards of beauty by which contestants were being judged.

So we’re looking at biased results here. And they can be traced to the people who set the rules in these calculations. Not some even-handed, simulated opinions of a machine. Don’t let people ignorant of this tell you anything different. I’m only saying what Chief Science Officer, Alex Zhavoronkov, from Youth Laboratories, has said, himself.

ew what even is that graphic im so sorry it would help if i wasnt so useless when it comes to cursive fonts rip alright nerds, here’s the deal. i know i’ve been really absent lately (i’ve been on like a semi-hiatus since my spring break which was like three weeks ago) and i need to get back in the swing of things. i also hit 2k like a month back  (im damn near close to 2.5k now, i have no idea how that happened) and i want to take some to celebrate you all and all of your beauty and wonderful blogs and creations.
