Bodywhat started out as an experiment in Computer vision. The goal was to try and see how much information about one's health you could infer from a single body picture.
It is the brainchild of Charles Labroy, a 25 years-old data scientist from France, and Maxime Lonné, a 23 years-old business major and fitness enthusiast.
Bodywhat is still in its infancy. Right now, the service supports only male users and has yet to be ported onto mobile platforms.
