A study from Stanford University has developed a computer algorithm would correctly distinguish between gay and straight men 80% of the time, and 74% of women. The study has generated curiosity over the biological origins of sexual orientation. The research was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. It was based on a sample of more than 35,000 facial images that men and women publicly posted on a US dating website. Researchers, Michal Kosinski and Yilun Wang extracted features from the images using deep neural...
An algorithm, in computer science and mathematics, is a self-reliant gradual set of operations that is to be executed. There are algorithms that can efficiently perform data processing, automated reasoning, and calculations. It is a very effective method for calculating a function, which can be expressed within a specific amount of space and time in a formal language that is well-defined. Apparently, the transition from one stage to another is not compulsorily deterministic. Few algorithms are known to be randomized and incorporat...
