    Very, very odd. I find the Welsh one the best in this line up.

    Some of them (for example German, Iranian and Italian) have so short faces compared to the others, they look downright squeezed. Is there really such a notable difference (I cannot say I noticed this in Italy or Germany), or is this some weirdness introduced by the algorithm?

    welsh, english, german and polish are all the same woman ..

    Yes. I've seen it a few times before on various shows and in books, but it's true that averaged faces are generally more attractive.

    This is probably the reason why children of mixed heritage tend to be more attractive than average as well, I'd think.


    Could have something to do with more symmetrical faces being more attractive, and if you average them that makes them more symmetrical.

    I like Korean eyes.

    this. taking an average of womens faces doesn't somehow make it look more beautiful. it's that a beautiful face is a statistical average of all women you've seen.

    from the comments section

    I used this site: http://www.faceresearch.org/demos/average

    I used no one I thought was under 20 and no one I thought was over 50. I used any internet source I could to get about 15-20 pictures each composite. The hardest thing is finding that many pictures of good frontal shots. Most people take pictures at an angle.

    It is also not always easy to find pictures of every nationality. At times I would use Google Image and type in the 10 most common last names for a nationality. For Latin America, where names are shared, I would use the most common last names for that country and put the country name in the search. I would try to verify that the person is at least in that country or from it (not easy). That was especially tricky with the UK (English, Welsh, etc) and Irish.

    Strangely for some nationalities it was easier to find men than women or vice versa. For example, very easy to find pictures of Italian men, but not women. It is very easy to find pictures of French women, but not men, etc.

    Anyway, for every composite I think I viewed at least a couple of thousand photos :



    If this is true, the sampling itself is biased. Ugly women do not post their picture on the internet (of their own volition). So the pictures he's averaging out are entirely omitting the ugly population.
