It seems that, among its many uses and annoyances, artificial intelligence has now learned how to predict our political ideologies, and it does this by examining our facial expressions, our “beauty” (to quote from the study I’m about to explain) and other things it sees.
I have always been partial to the definition of attractiveness provided by early 20th century Lebanese-American writer Kahlil Gibran, who said, “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
Shows what I know. That feel-good philosophy is apparently completely unscientific. Heart schmart.
