Scientists have created the AI-psychopath

Experts on machine learning from mit – a neural network inspired by kichkovskyy a psychopath with a split personality Norman Bates, a character in a novel by Robert Bloch and the eponymous Alfred Hitchcock film "Psycho." Fortunately, the only function of nereusite is the analysis of stains of Rorschach. The developers claim that the sole purpose of the project is a demonstration of how the training sample can affect artificial intelligence.

Himself the Rorschach test was invented early last century by the Swiss psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach. Its essence lies in viewing the ten images that show symmetrical blots. The patient taking the test easier to interpret each of them, describing the first came in the head of the Association. Rorschach and his followers believed that with this test you can determine the mental state of the person because everyone who suffer from one or another mental disorder that responds differently to the shapes and colors of blots and sees them as completely different shapes and images. The real effectiveness of this method is still not confirmed, however it does not prevent it to be used in psychiatric practice worldwide.

Pinar Yanardag and his colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of technology also have adopted a Rorschach test, which became the basis for a new neural network, which was created using the methods of deep learning. As a base for the thematic sampling, the researchers used images from the thematic community c Reddit dedicated to talking about death: ethical considerations, the developers did not name it.

Based On the collected data, the neural network trained in the analysis and interpretation of Rorschach stains. The answers of the neural network is then compared with the answers issued by the neural network, trained on dataset MsCOCO built for image recognition. Interestingly, the results were very different. The neural network trained on the standard dataset seen in spots "vase with flowers", and Norman — "shot man".

Norman — a fairly simple neural network, and functions it a bit. Its only practical application can be computer-aided diagnosis answers real people on a Rorschach test. In fact the developers wanted to show how artificial intelligence may be biased depending on the training sample.
