Paper

According to scientists it is possible to predict whose marriages will fail by looking at photographs taken decades earlier

According to the paper, they estimate intensity of smile by summing the FACS coding intensity (neutral:0, A-E:1-5) of AU6+AU12.

Study 1: Photos of  300 married subjects are collected from college yearbook. Among them, 55 were divorced.

Study 2: Childhood photos (age 5-22) provided by 55 subjects.

Logistic Regression was used to learn the predicative model (Divorced?) ~ (Smile Intensity).

There is no performance measurement except for some significance tests.
