This Is the Best Way to Take a Selfie, According to Artificial Intelligence

Scientists are using machine learning to empower self-driving cars, autonomous robots, and even smarter Google searches. Now a computer has been tasked with an arguably grander task: figuring out how to take the perfect selfie. Researcher Andrej Karpathy, a PhD student at Stanford working in theComputer Vision Lab, trained a neural network computer to determine what constitutes a “good” selfie, and now you can tweet your selfies to the network’s Twitter bot for evaluation. Neural networks are computer systems inspired by the structure of the human brain. Rather like the DeepDream neural network that Google built to create bizarre, mutated dog-based art, Karpathy’s program analyses millions of images, breaking down each one into layers of shapes and colors that the program analyses. Karpathy wrote in an Oct. 25 blog post that he fed his own…
