Biometric Mirror: Reflecting the Assumptions Made By AI 2018 / Newspaper Article

Within the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), facial analysis gains popularity. Today, CCTV cameras and advertising screens increasingly link with analysis systems that are able to detect emotions, age, gender and demographic information of people passing by.

But what if AI gets it wrong? And should we even allow AI to make assumptions about ourselves?

Biometric Mirror is an interactive tool that assesses and displays people's individual personality traits. It is a research tool that helps us to understand how attitudes change as more of people's data is revealed. The discussion around ethical use of AI is ongoing, but there's an urgent need for the public to be involved in the debate about these issues. By encouraging debate about privacy and mass surveillance, we will gain a better understanding of the ethics that sit behind AI.
