Three Pennsylvania State University (PSU) researchers will participate this week in the world finals of the 2018 L'Oreal Brandstorm contest in Paris, using their prototype "smart mirror" to enhance salon interactions.
PSU researcher Yuya Ong first coded facial recognition software that identified key points on the user's face to ascertain face shape, and then PSU's Vincent Trost employed an algorithm to determine which hairstyles were sported by models with variable face shapes showcased in beauty catalogs.
The mirror integrates these programs to recommend and model hairstyles and cosmetics that are popular among other users with similar facial features.
"With this system, we can better analyze many features including facial shape, age, skin tone, and other critical information about a customer in real time," Ong says. "This isn't automated intelligence or artificial intelligence; it's augmented intelligence."
