Look like the average residents of the countries in the world according to artificial intelligence?

Achievements of artificial intelligence have managed once again to surprise us. Thus, specialists from the University of Glasgow were able to recreate the computer version of the average people from different countries of the world. How do they differ? Let’s try to understand this interesting question together.

Why is there race?

As you know, currently on Earth there are about 7 billion people. Absolutely all of them are descended from ancient Homo Sapiens, regardless of their nationality or ethnic origin. If so, then why are we all so different?

Well, the basics of the theory of races was first laid in early 1900, when the famous Russian-French naturalist Joseph Deniker first created the map of European racial composition. The researcher was able to select 6 different races, each of which stood out thanks to its characteristic features.

Currently, the theory of races has simplified, leaving only 3 main races, most very different from each other by their appearance. So, today there is a Caucasoid race, the representatives of which include inhabitants of Europe, Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, as well as residents of North and South America; Negroid race, whose members live in most of the African continent; the Mongoloid race, is almost entirely seized the territory of modern Asia.

Besides the aforementioned races, there are small races that include representatives americanidiot race living in North and South America, as well as representatives of veddo-Australoid race, whose habitat is confined to the Australian continent.

Anthropologists believe that the first in the world race appeared in the Paleolithic era, while the Caucasoid person originated much later — during the onset of the Neolithic. In any case, modern science operates by two main theories about the causes of different races on the planet. Polycentric theory is that interbreeding different species of human on the borders of their main habitats has led to the emergence of the so-called intermediate races, which gradually settled across the planet, acquiring all the characteristic signs of a particular primary race.

However, if earlier it was believed that the ancient human ancestor came from South-Eastern Africa, at the present time, scientists are increasingly put this assertion into question. So, the real bone of contention between polycentricity and monocentricity have found the remains of ancient people who lived in Australia about 60 thousand years ago. DNA analysis of fossilized bones revealed an ancient Australian aborigine has no relation to their African counterparts.

In other words, most likely, the theory of policentrismo was correct, and people do come from different corners of the planet. Migrating our ancestors interbred among themselves, gradually forming a new nation with its own cultures and traditions. Moreover, adapting to life in a particular locality, the organisms of the ancient people was changing, adapting to certain climatic features. So, the Mongoloid race had become epicanthus, thanks to which the modern inhabitants of Asian countries have acquired a high level of adaptation and can live in almost any habitat.

The Negroid race has a greater resistance to high solar radiation, but is most dependent manifestations of solar activity and poorly adapts when you move to the Northern regions with a lower level of lighting.

Caucasian ethnicity has a greater resistance to cold and short daylight, which is often observed in the Northern parts of the Eurasian continent. However, Caucasian is much worse adapted to life in hot places of the planet in comparison with the representative of the Negroid race.

It is believed that representatives of the same race living in different countries often differ from each other not only certain features of culture and respect peoples traditions but also the unique exterior features. We all differ from each other due to such factors as skin color, eye color and hair color. Knowing the external characteristics of a particular nationality, we can learn how to accurately identify the origin of our interlocutor.
