AI pegged Trump as a single guy based on his Twitter habits

New York Post has mentioned technology: "President Trump’s Twitter habits fooled Russian scientists into thinking he was a single guy, according to a new study.

Researchers from Information Technology, Optical Design and Engineering University in Saint Petersburg used artificial intelligence trained to determine a person’s marital status based on their social media use on tweets by Trump and former President Obama.

The new algorithm — which is correct 86 percent of the time — confirmed Obama’s marital status, but whiffed when it came to the very-married president.

The researchers chalked up the “irregularity” to Trump’s “bachelor”-like tendency for late-night tweeting, and the fact that he doesn’t always update his social media accounts."
