In short: Yes, they can, and they're even better than humans at doing it. According to a highly disconcerting study from Stanford University, pictures of human faces contain a wealth of information that the human brain simply cannot process, while artificial intelligence can. According to their research, a deep neural network was able to distinguish between gay and heterosexual men in 81 percent of cases, and in 74 percent of cases for women, compared to just 61 percent for men and 54 percent for women for human judges. If the algorithm had at least five images of a person to scan, the percentage of success rose to 91 percent and 83 percent, respectively.
