A new Russian study demonstrates that artificial intelligence (AI) is able to infer people’s personalities from “selfie” photographs better than human raters do.

The technology was able to make above-chance judgments on the “Big Five” personality traits — conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness — based on 31 thousand selfies the participants had uploaded online.

The personality trait of conscientiousness emerged as more easily recognizable than the other four traits. In addition, personality predictions based on female faces appeared to be more reliable than those for male faces.
