Miss AI

Entries are now being accepted for the world's first "Miss AI" contest.

One of the organizers of the pageant offered the following justification for it: "Considering real beauty pageants are criticised for dehumanising women, lets dodge that bullet by having contestants which aren’t human to begin with!"

The contestants will be judged by a panel that consists of two humans and two AI models. They don't explain how the AI models will make their decision or cast their votes. I assume the human creators of the AI models will be the actual judges.

Although this may be the first "Miss AI" contest, it won't be the first computer-generated beauty queen. As we've previously posted, back in 1964 engineers at California Computer Products unveiled "Miss Formula," whom they described as "a computer's idea of how the perfect female should look."

While the technology has advanced, the basic idea remains the same.

It kind of makes sense. When you think of the publics typical image of a computer nerd it´s probably the closest to a real woman as they´re going to get.

It makes sense for an AI model to be judged by a jury of their peers. Two humans might be too much on this panel.

I still prefer a printer pin-up to an AI plastic body.
