Tyrant Recognition


One of the major recent advances in artificial intelligence and computer vision is the recognition and analysis of faces. These advances have made it possible to use algorithms and systems that can determine one’s gender, race, age, identity, and even emotions, based on one’s facial image. Henceforth, the question that some researchers are passionate about is whether this facial analysis technology can make it possible to deduce correlations between the socio-psychological perception, the personality traits and the behavioral tendencies of individuals from their facial images. Would it be possible to predict the tyrannical behavior of a person?

Tyrant Recognition is an app featuring facial recognition that allows the user to discover which dictator’s face his face is the most similar to. It’s a method to help determine the authoritarian personality based on one’s face.
