Minority Report Becomes Reality: Artificial Intelligence Succeeds to Identify Criminals By Their Faces
Artificial Intelligence develops a neural network that can separate criminals and non-criminals by their mugshots.
It might sound like a scene from Minority Report, but it is not. Scientists from Shangai Jiao Tong University identified offenders with an accuracy of 89.5 percent via machine-vision algorithms. The study named ‘Automated Inference on Criminality’ is the first automated work that takes account of criminality in relation to still pictures of faces.

Criminologists integrate latest technologies to collect detailed data to identify criminals. According to Xiaolin Wu and Xi Zhang, scientists who ran the study, their method is straightforward.
