Now, thanks to the lackeys of the masterful overlords at Penn State U, you will soon no longer have to ask your significant other, "Do I look fat in these jeans?". You're about to experience an entirely new level of "photographic objectivity"...

University Park, Pa. -- An online photo-rating system developed at Penn State is the first publicly available tool for automatically determining the aesthetic value of an image, according to a Penn State researcher involved with the project.

James Z. Wang, associate professor of information sciences and technology, is one of the principal researchers on the Aesthetic Quality Inference Engine (ACQUINE), a system that judges the aesthetic quality of digital images. Wang said this tool is a significant first step in recognizing human emotional reaction to visual stimulus.



Yes Dave, you do look fat in those jeans...
