AI cant even tell the difference between an apple and a tomato.

That's your fault. I'm afraid that we have to transfer you to the team working on the 'hot dog or penis' app.

There are all kinds of reasons why I seldom allow my photograph to be taken.

Oh, and before some dingleberry says "But it gets taken all the time without your knowing about it!" that's true--but likewise, the CCTV camera doesn't know it's me. I'm just a face in a crowd.

I almost never allow my name and face to be associated if I can possibly avoid it, and it's stood me in very good stead.

I dunno, I utilize the image recognition on quite frequently (if only because otherwise I'd have to look up the correct spelling), and it is darn good at recognizing even obscure plants.

Now that I think about it, their plant recognition is better than their spell check!

Most likely this will be repurposed for determining whether or not you're a "current liver host for the deserving" or "compost for the yeast vats".

Herb Utsmelz: 120 years ago they tried to do that by feeling bumps on people's heads. This is bound to be as reliable.

Yup.  High tech phrenology is what we have here.

The average effect size of r = .24 indicates that AI can make a correct guess about the relative standing of two randomly chosen individuals on a personality dimension in 58% of cases as opposed to the 50% expected by chance.

Yep, 8% of a difference between AI prediction and "either you are a psychopath or not".

That's a resounding success...

Artificial intelligence can make personality judgments based on our photographs the biases of the programmers and/or the aggregate of input biases for machine learning.

The "AI" "looks" at data we show it, but learns what we say to from it basiaclly.
If the AI is told, a person that looks this way bis ___, and we say that to it over and over and over again with a million different examerplks of what it is told is, lets say a happy smile.

Is this AI then going to be noticing when that happy smile is a shared happy smile with you, or they exhibit a happy smile in anticipation of the harm they are about to visit upon you?

If we teach the AI how to ID sarcasm, is different from how the AI treats sarcasm. AS sarcasm does or does not work depending on the audience more than the delivery of it.
Someone attempting to exhibit sarcasm may be showing us a positive interaction or a very fugitive condensing one.

And i do not believe the Ai will make that call correctly, it will merely show us the bias of it's programmers toward  such.
