Deep Learning Algorithm Can Now Judge You by Your Face

First impressions can be terribly important, sometimes to a fault. Anyone who’s lived long enough can attest to that. Computers are now getting in on the game – starting with faces – thanks to the work of Mel McCurrie at the University of Notre Dame, and five others. The team wanted to study how deep learning could be used to predict first impressions, i.e., use an algorithm to judge someone’s trustworthiness, dominance, IQ, and age by just their face. To train the machine-learning algorithm, McCurrie and his team turned to brain testing website – where they asked participants to rate 6,300 greyscale pictures of faces. Of this, 6,000 images were used for the algorithm’s training purpose, 200 for fine-tuning and 100 for the testing phase. To ensure consistency, each…
