23 Sep 2009

From the land of “Probably not a good idea but how could the nerds resist the temptation of a good challenge” comes a new project from MIT, help Project Gaydar.

Using data from the social network Facebook, sovaldi they made a striking discovery: just by looking at a person’s online friends, discount they could predict whether the person was gay. They did this with a software program that looked at the gender and sexuality of a person’s friends and, using statistical analysis, made a prediction.
