Telegram chatbot is supposed to identify race by photo
Recently, Telegram users found @DeepLineageBot chatbot that knows how to identify race by photo. After a careful picture analysis, the program gives the percentage of the person’s origin.
Unfortunately, the bot has significant limitations and numerous bugs. It can identify only six races: Europeans, Asians, Africans, Hispanics, Arabs and Jews. And, by the way, it identifies Jews most often. The bot was even jokingly called an anti-Semite.
There are quite a few bugs. The bot cannot distinguish faces in some photos, while trying to identify others saying that there are two faces in the picture, and asks if it is an alien. Many users tried to trick the bot by wearing traditional headgear of different nations. Sometimes the bot generates different results, sometimes - the same.
In general, DeepLineageBot is more like a funny toy than a functional tool. But admit that the idea is interesting anyway.
