Computer facial recognition can tell if a person is liberal or conservative from a photo 72% of the time.

The skinny jeans, however, well, we’ll let that one go.

When they look at me, they won't need some damn facial recognition app to figure out my political and social thoughts.  Mrs. Hangtree says my beliefs are stamped all over my face for all to see.

Here in CA, one gets a pretty good idea when they see a solo driver wearing a mask in the car.

Well they claim that the average for human's being able to tell from a picture is 55% vs the computer at 72%. What is not explained is that discerning and observant indivuduals can undoubtedly do just as well as a computer. Sex, clothing, ethnicity, age, hairstyle, etc...all give clues.

I have no trouble tell who's a liberal around here. They all drive Subaru Foresters or Toyota Priuses, turn without signaling and go 10mph below the speed limit. And they brake for all espresso stands.

I saw a Subaru today with a sticker that said Socialism sucks” and another that said 0% Liberal. :lol: I had a Subaru a few years ago and I’m no liberal!

Ah, see, you obviously got rid of it before the mind waves they emit took a hold of you. :P

I have been specing and installing facial recognition systems for many years.

There is not a manufacturer either here or in China that would make any such claim.

Facial recognition makes no judgements as to any of the items listed on any non-databased individual. The subjects face must be already be in a database for the software to pick out anything about any individual. 

Even the newer systems that automatically read everyone's temperature has quite a wide spread. You have to REALLY be running a temperature to register and trigger a response.

So far the databases have not been significantly interfaced. But do beware....... a national/international database is in the works. 

Those cameras installed on every traffic light pole will soon be taking a picture of every driver and every pedestrian they can see. The New York subway system cameras as well as few other major cities are already using facial recognition to be the eyes of the police.  Just enter the individual you are looking for and you can bet there will be a hit on the system if you move around these cities.

Most major Casinos use facial recognition to identify unwanted individuals, regardless of disguise, as they walk in the door.

Thank you.        My brain has black streaks from spinning out trying to come up with the name of the science.

When I was a teenager in the 70s I ran into an actual reformed hippie .  We spent the weekend with his father who, like my dad was a preacher.  

 

He told me before he repented from that life he could look at someone and tell if they were pro or anti establishment.   He said I was pro establishment.   I was glad.   

 

A true believer,  either way can probably tell if they thought about it.

My wife has a Outback, she loves the thing . It’s ugly as sin but I have to admit it’s been one of the most reliable cars we’ve ever had. I’d have no problem replacing it with another if that’s what she wants . We’re both definitely not liberal

After 9/11, they were upgrading the security of our city facilities.  Entry to the wastewater treatment plant now required entry of a password to open the gate.  At the meeting describing the new procecures, a coworker asked, "Why don't they just install one of those rectal eye scanners?"  After the expected mirth, it was explained that he meant "retinal", not "rectal".

Maybe he was right after all.  One of those rectal scanners might make it easier to identify liberals.

That's because you're not here in WA state. Subarus are the vehicle of choice for tree-hugging, pot-smoking liberal-progressive soccer moms who like to pretend they actually love the outdoors and nature. The rich ones drive massive luxury SUVs with every option imaginable.
