Cornell Chronicle: Do trucks mean Trump? AI shows how humans misjudge images. “Researchers from Cornell and partner institutions analyzed more than 16 million human predictions of whether a neighborhood voted for Joe Biden or Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election based on a single Google Street View image. They found that humans as a group performed well at the task, but a computer algorithm was better at distinguishing between Trump and Biden country. The study also classified common ways that people mess up, and identified objects – such as pickup trucks and American flags – that led people astray.”
