So, what if it's not even 10pm
and it's a Tuesday night?
The Kirkland's facebook
is open on my desktop
and somebody of these people with
pretty horrendous facebook pics.
Billy Olsen's sitting here had the idea,
putting some of the picture
next to picture of farm animal,
and have people vote who's hotter.
I'm not gonna do the farm animal but I
like the idea of comparing two people together.
It gives the whole thing a very "Turing" feel since
people's rating of the picture is more implicit...
Than say, choosing a number to represent each
person's hotness like they do on hotornot. com
The first thing we're going
to need is a lot of picture...
Let the hacking begin!
Eduardo is here and he is going
to have the key ingredients.
- Hey Mark
- I need you.
- I'm here for you.
- No, I need the algorithm you
use to rank chess players.
- Are you ok?
- We're ranking girls.
- You mean others student.
- You think this such a good idea?
- I need the algorithm, alright.
I need the algorithm.
- Each girl base rating 1400.
At any given time "Girl A" has a rating
R-a and "Girl B" has a rating R-b.
When any 2 girls are matched up,
there's an expectation of which will
win based on their current rating, right?
And all those expectations
are express this way.
- Let's write it.
- The one on the left.
- The right.
- It works.
- Who should we send it first?
- Who will you send it to?
- Just to couple of people.
Question is: who are they gonna send it to?
