Guardian News, a National publication put together an amazing political quiz about artificial intelligence.

In it, Bristol and San Diego were chosen. Why Bristol? I have no clue. The Guardian reports “Researchers say artificial intelligence will soon be able to detect a person’s political allegiance – just by looking at photos of their face.”

Michal Kosinski Stanford University professor told The Guardian”using photos, AI will be able to identify people’s political views, whether they have high IQs, whether they are predisposed to criminal behavior, whether they have specific personality traits and many other private, personal details that could carry huge social consequences.”

The Guardian put together a quiz to see if you can beat the algorithms and work out, from someone’s face, their political allegiance.

“We’ve chosen 15 pictures of city councilors from Bristol, Connecticut and San Diego – eight Democrats, seven Republicans.”

Can you figure out which is which? Take the Quiz HERE.
