FaceStat: a Mechanical Turk face judgment application
April 21st, 2008

FaceStat is a new application which makes use of Amazon Mechanical Turk to run a mini-survey on faces visitors pull from their Facebook profile. FaceStat reports back the results on axes such as perceived age, gender, ethnicity, intelligence, political affiliation, attractiveness, trustworthiness, funniness, wealth, weight, intoxication, and relationship status. They are currently letting visitors submit one photo a day for free, and from testing it seems they can get results turned around in a few hours.

More information on the project from the Dolores Labs blog, the company running this service.

(disclosure: I’ve been running Mechanical Turk experiments with the Dolores Labs team as well)
