    That's a tough call though.
    It's not really training a computer to judge what's beautiful or not is is.
    It's just asking loads of humans what they think is beautiful, and basings it's opinions based upon humans opinions.
    So you'll end up with some generic/stereotypical view of what the majority of humans class as beautiful.
    Not sure I'd really call that, THAT intelligent a system.

    (and yes I know it's an old post, but hey, I blame the AV Forums for putting old thread topics on my screen) ;)
