in a nutshell: New Stanford study shows that a facial recognition algorithm can correctly determine whether people are straight or gay with up to 91% accuracy when using multiple images. this has NOT yet been peer reviewed, FWIW.

what does this mean? gay people have a certain look to them that can be detected by a computer program. 91% for men and 83% for women. there are fears by the LGBTQ+ community that this could be used to discriminate.

vin armani, in the broadcast, believes that if the computer can figure out who is and who is not gay, that there is a genetic component.

That's kinda creepy. What if they scanned your face and told you that you looked gay but you were actually straight?

On the positive side that means self appointed gaydar Biotio will be made redundant. https://vigilantcitizenforums.com/threads/the-transgender-agenda-hidden-in-plain-sight.245/

I'm not sure a panda bear even knows what he or she is. They don't actually have the language to identify themselves as a panda bear or others as an ostrich, a giraffe or an elephant. Humans do have the knowledge and the ability to understand different types of life.
