This article on Futurism raises the question – can big data tell from a picture if you are a criminal or not.
It is just bunk, though, really.
Just because there is a correlation in data – doesn’t mean there is a causation. This is one of the basics of statistics and is a caution to anything determined on data only.
Perhaps, if you have committed a crime (or feel you have committed a crime) – you get a “look” on your face that matches their criteria.
The implications that the shape of your face – leads to a prognostication that you *will* commit a crime – is as preposterous as the debunked science of phrenology – measuring the head to determine personality traits.
