Researchers create algorithm for the perfect selfie
Ah, the selfie - a necessary evil that has become an almost daily self-indulgence in our lives. In fact, such is its importance in pop culture that the technique of taking the "perfect selfie" is being analysed.
Despite killing more people than sharks did in 2015, selfies are not showing any regression and remain our favourite form of photography. From finding the perfect lighting, background, screen allocation etc. turns out it's all rather complex. But, as with most things these days, there's an app for that.
Developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo an algorithm has been created that uses face size, lighting direction and face position to help you click your perfect shot.
No more crappy selfies on Instagram and you won’t have to snap them 1,000 times.
