In a study called  Assessing the Big Five personality traits using real-life static facial images, researchers built an artificial neural network that can assess 128 different factors of a person’s face.

“We trained a cascade of artificial neural networks (ANNs) on a large labelled dataset to predict self-reported Big Five scores,” said the researchers. With this, the researchers used the data to reveal and analyze five different personality traits of a person. These are conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness.

This study also hopes to improve future selections of dating websites, online tutoring, and the like.
