    New AI System Identifies Personality Traits from Eye Movements

    Artificial intelligence keeps improving. Robots, computers and smartphones could now discern our personality with more accuracy than a human in a few minutes. This is great to personalise our interactions with machines, but when should we draw the line? Are we going to reach a point when AI will be able to manipulate us with such ease that we won't even notice it?

    New AI System Identifies Personality Traits from Eye Movements

    "Computers are gradually learning to interpret human behaviour – and can now also do so by analysing the way people use their eyes. A team led by researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics has developed a software system that can draw conclusions about a person’s personality traits by using artificial intelligence to evaluate their eye movements. People also tend to make subconscious assessments of character on the basis of visual behaviour. In order to make human-computer collaboration more social, efficient and flexible, the new software system is now able to process a person’s eye movements to calculate for example how neurotic, extrovert and curious they are.

    “Besides allowing us to perceive our surroundings, eye movements are also a window into our mind. They reveal who we are, how we feel and what we do,” explains Andreas Bulling, who leads thePerceptual User Interfacesresearch group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the Cluster of Excellence at Saarland University in Saarbrücken. Humans can read the social signals sent by the eyes as a matter of course and without being aware of doing so. Andreas Bulling is now working with scientists in Stuttgart and Australia to teach this skill to computers. This means for example that robots will eventually be able to use and understand the nonverbal communication channels used by humans. The team has developed a machine learning based software system for this purpose. The software evaluates eye movements recorded by an eye tracker to predict the subject’s personality traits.

    That's literally amazing. AI improvements through the last few years are remarkable and even in the latest Clockwise Software blog post about web development technologies they had the whole section about machine learning and AI so the technology now has a practical use in different areas and it seems like in the next few years we'll see some more major improvements which I am looking forward to see.

    The structural approach as the basis of the artificial intelligence system uses modeling the structure of the human brain. Artificial intelligence can determine a person’s gender by a smile. In science fiction books of the last century, artificial intelligence supplanted people and began to dominate the planet. But a development team such as learning how to control the processes of artificial intelligence and machine learning
