Perhaps you've heard it said that the "eyes are the window to the soul"?   Here's a thought, what if the creature watching your eyes has no soul itself?  Artificial Intelligence Technology is now capable of reading your personality by way of your eyes!

The Daily Mail reports that Australian scientists have created what they're referring to as "mind-reading" artificial intelligence using a machine to study how eye movements and personality are related.

This might sound fairly obvious but then we ARE talking about "artificial" intelligence, right? They found, for example, that curious people tend to look around more, open-minded people stare at abstract images for longer periods of time, and neurotic people usually blinked faster.  Surprise! Not exactly SkyNet just yet.

But they say the findings could be combined with AI to teach robots to be more socially aware.  Now we are getting closer to creepy! among other uses.
