Gay Rights Research Paper Outline
The model performed worse with women, telling gay and straight apart with 71% accuracy after looking at one photo, and 83% accuracy after five.In other words, the model was shown two photos and told that one was gay and one was straight.The paper, titled “Deep neural networks are more accurate than humans at detecting sexual orientation from facial images” is now being re-examined, according to one of the journal’s editors, Shinobu Kitayama.
Some scholars assert that "homosexuality" as a discrete identity is a very modern western construction (although the dates suggested by these scholars vary considerably).
He declined to answer further questions, but suggested the review’s findings would be announced in “some weeks.”The study trained a computer model to recognize gay people based on photos of people from Facebook and a dating site.
The researchers, Yilun Wang and Michal Kosinski of Stanford University, relied on stated sexual preferences as well as what Facebook groups people liked in order to determine who was gay or straight.
In practice, however, even those who argue this way accept that homosexual activity in the past was widespread (however conceived at the time) and that this past is of interest to modern lesbians and gays.
An analogy may be made here with "national" histories: there was no "English nation" before the late middle ages - the idea of "nation" is itself a late development - and yet the history of both Roman Britannia and Anglo-Saxon and earlier medieval England is fairly studied as contributing to the history of the modern English nation.
