Concerns over ‘gaydar’ gadget
BOFFINS have trained an AI computer program that can tell whether someone is GAY from their photo.
And the machine can detect sexual orientation with a 91% accuracy.
Stanford University researchers have trained their AI system by downloading more than 130,000 images of faces from a dating website.
Their machine then scanned facial features of the thousands of photos and logged which features were most likely to appear in gay people than straight people.
The system was then shown photos of people it hadn’t seen before and correctly guessed their sexuality 91% of the time.
However, some critics have blasted the software saying that it could be used to ‘out’ men and women who aren’t ready.
