This is what the “perfect” woman and man look like according to artificial intelligence

Here’s what the “perfect” woman and man look like physically, according to artificial intelligence Bulimia Project/Intervention

These AI-generated pictures draw portraits of “ideal” women and men physically based on beauty rules popularized on the Internet and social media.

More than ever, psychologists are raising the alarm about the impact of social media on mental health, with some decrying its impact on perception and self-esteem. These concerns led The Bulimia Project (an American platform specializing in the prevention of eating disorders) to investigate the “ideal” body types that contribute to the many images circulating on screens. Awareness group CAW asked artificial intelligence to draw portraits of the “perfect” woman and man, based on the photos that get the most engagement online and on social media.

“Unrealistic” ideals

The site reports that 40% of profiles produced by various AI image generators (namely Dall-E 2, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney) depict “unrealistic” body types.

As for the ideal of female beauty, the images created by artificial intelligence tend to show characters with tanned skin (53% of them), blonde hair (37%) and brown eyes (30%). In most cases, they have a thin torso with an “X” shaped silhouette and a well-defined belly.

Most AI-generated images of men embody the stereotype of a strong, dark man. The male ideal most often appears with brown hair (67%), dark skin tone (63%), beard (47%) and brown eyes (23%). The study notes that the standing bodies shown all look like “photoshopped versions of bodybuilders”.

The impact of algorithms

The Bulimia Project report also noted that images based on beauty rules shared on social media have a “sexier” connotation than those commonly broadcast online. Some may also find it “disturbing” because of “grossly disproportionate body parts” that create a silhouette far from reality.

“Given that social networks use algorithms based on the content that gets the most attention, it’s easy to guess why AI renderings will be more sexualized,” the study analyzed. “However, for starters, we can only speculate that the reason AI has created so many of the oddly shaped physiques found on social media is because these platforms promote unrealistic body types,” it detailed. in the report. In conclusion, reminding: “In the age of filters on photo apps like Snapchat and Instagram, no one can reasonably live up to the physical standards set by social media.”
