Stanford Ph.D. student, Andrej Karpathy, has created a system that analyzed over 2 million selfies to determine the underlying requirements of a good selfie.

Andrej also developed @deepselfie, a Twitter bot, who you can tweet your photos to and receive an automatic reply with a percentage score.

So, what makes a good selfie? Here are the overarching criteria:

  • Female
  • Long hair
  • Forehead cut off in photo
  • Washed out
  • Filtered
  • And it also helps if you’re white

Tweet to the Selfie Bot and get your selfie judged by a robot.
