Biometric Mirror: Reflecting the imperfections in AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) which rates a user's physical and personality traits based on a photograph of them has been developed by the University of Melbourne and Science Gallery Melbourne.
The Biometric Mirror compares the photograph to a database of what 10,000 people think of different facial appearances.
The project is designed to raise awareness of the flaws of artificial intelligence - the algorithm makes decisions based on other people’s opinions, not facts - and provoke discussion about how it is used.
