  • The neural network could tell criminals apart from non-criminals with a stunning accuracy of 89.5 percent.
  • With the advent of photography, a tiny fraction of 19th-century scientists believed they could develop methods of accurately identifying criminals by their facial features.
  • If psychologists are right to suggest humans can make out criminals from non-criminals , machines should be capable of this too – especially, since neural networks are modeled after the human brain.
  • The photographic sample that was fed to the neural network is severely limited, to say the least – both when it comes to the quantity and quality of the photos that the AI parsed.

Researchers from Shanghai Jiao Tong University have developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that can supposedly pick out criminals by their faces.
