Artificial Intelligence Will Now Predict People’s Political Views Through Photo Analysis

In a study conducted in Denmark, it was determined that the political views of individuals can be predicted with 61 percent accuracy through photo analysis using artificial intelligence.

Dr. Stig Hebbelstrup Rye Rasmussen from Aarhus University in Denmark and his team have launched a study examining the link between people’s facial expressions and their political views.

In the study, which used photographs of politicians and MPs competing in local elections in Denmark in 2017, 4,647 candidates’ photographs were analyzed.

Scientists used different algorithms with Microsoft’s ‘facial expression recognition technology’ to detect people’s moods, facial expressions and facial structures.

The study found that artificial intelligence was able to predict people’s political ideologies based on their facial expressions with 61 percent accuracy.

It was stated that the research in question made use of the ‘deep learning method’ in which artificial intelligence has the capacity to learn by imitating human behavior.

The results of the research were published in ‘Scientific Reports’.
