According to The Guardian, research from Psychologist Michal Kosinski, a professor of organisational behaviour at Stanford University, indicates that artificial intelligence can be used to determine political affiliation, I.Q., sexual orientation, and the predisposition to commit certain crimes.

How did this 36-year-old academic, who has yet to write a book, attract the attention of the Russian cabinet? Over our several meetings in California and London, Kosinski styles himself as a taboo-busting thinker, someone who is prepared to delve into difficult territory concerning artificial intelligence and surveillance that other academics won’t. “I can be upset about us losing privacy,” he says. “But it won’t change the fact that we already lost our privacy, and there’s no going back without destroying this civilisation.”
