AI peeps into your personality

Science Innovations

University of South Australia has developed a machine learning algorithm that could link your personality with the pattern of your eye movements in collaboration with University of Stuttgart, Flinders University and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Germany. The results reveal that your eyes may also be an indicator of your personality type, simply by the way they move.

People's eye movements reveal whether they are sociable, conscientious or curious. The research team developed an algorithm for the software that reliably recognize the four of the Big Five personality traits you could belong to: neuroticism, extroversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness, just by observing your eye movements.

The study provides new links between previously under-investigated eye movements and personality traits and delivers important insights for emerging fields of social signal processing and social robotics.


People are looking for improved, personalized services today. However, the robots and computers of the day are not socially aware, so they cannot adapt to non-verbal cues. This research provides opportunities to develop robots and computers so that they can become more natural, and better at interpreting human social signals.
