Vanguard Polonia - Game Changing Breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence and Big Data

Polonia have a long and most distinguished and inspirational track record in making monumental contributions that have enriched the world and literally changed the course of human history.

Another quietly written chapter made headlines recently with the epic work of Dr Michał Kosiński of Stanford University:

Face-reading AI will be able to detect your politics and IQ, professor says

Michal Kosinski [whose] research suggesting that artificial intelligence (AI) can detect whether people are gay or straight based on photos - said sexual orientation was just one of many characteristics that algorithms would be able to predict through facial recognition...AI will be able to identify people's political views, whether they have high IQs, whether they are predisposed to criminal behavior, whether they have specific personality traits and many other private, personal details that could carry huge social consequences, he said.

This is a truly fascinating advancement in the understanding of humanity. Not only in terms of human evolution but also ethical challenges societies will face in the near future and beyond.

Well done Dr Kosiński.

He also suggests he can use the same software to predict extreme political leanings and personality disorders like psychopathy etc. He has some very interesting ideas and is particularly interested in the work of Cambridge Analytica. The most interesting of the things he does dovetails with some of the research that is happening on Artificial Intuition, which is about mass analysis of data in order to predict trends, financial market movements and possibly geopolitical change.

Some of it, like the sexuality and the political thing are of little use - the Artificial Intuition however is something we will be seeing more of in the future.

This is something he did - it's actually worth a look to see what it says about you. It's usually fairly accurate: applymagicsauce.com

True. I've done a few of the tests and the conclusions pretty much nail me. The thing is that if you have a reasonable level of insight and can be honest with yourself, the tests don't tell you anything you didn't know. I suppose the tests have their uses, though.

Mine gets quite a lot of it wrong, basically most of what Kosinski says he can predict, things like subject of academic studies, political views, religious views, sexuality and sporting interests.

It seems there's a long way to go before his ideas are accepted or useful. Perhaps he should stick to Artificial Intuition, something of most interest to companies operating in financial markets, or to political parties.

academic studies, political views, religious views, sexuality and sporting interests.

I didn't go that deep. Just a few short questionaires. I'll have a longer look, time-willing.
