«My light, a mirror, tell me» or how the AI learned to determine personal qualities

An artificial intelligence has developed in Melbourne University, which, by analyzing a person, not only explicit external signs can determine, but also such as attractiveness or emotional stability.

Researchers decided to implement an idea of a fairy tale, setting a unique biometric mirror in their foyer, which are the surveillance camera. After a person is suitable and raises his hand, the program begins to process the image. In addition to gender, ethnicity and age, AI presents data on attractiveness, emotional stability, aggressiveness and other features. Total estimate is carried out on 14 characteristics.

Before the program began to draw conclusions about personal qualities, it processed 10 thousand photos of persons with their description. However, due to the subjective human assessment, the algorithm may use false data for conclusions. For example, a young Australian was adopted for a Caucasian woman. Researchers say that the project is under development and continues to improve it. However, some perceived such a development as one more step approaching the society to the events described in the novel of George Orwell «1984».
