Style software gives fashion tips after judging what you wear

_To teach the software about fashion, Urtasun's team showed it thousands of pictures from Chictopia, a popular style website. The more positive votes left by other users, the more "fashionable" the software perceived the look to be._ _It also noted other information about the photo, such as the user's geographic location, the date they had posted it, the background of the picture, and written descriptions of the clothing._ _The resulting software uses this information to categorise outfits and make suggestions based on what was successful for others in similar situations – for example, to add black boots or try something in pastel. The team plans to hone the results further by showing it a more diverse array of photos from other sources._
