Kairos Diversity Recognition is a face recognition web application developed by the artificial intelligence company Kairos, which analyzes user-submitted portrait photographs and estimates percentages for the subject's ethnic makeup. The results are encouraged to be shared on social media along with the hashtag #DiversityRecognition.


On March 11th, 2017, Kairos launched the Diversity Recognition application for users to submit photographs to be analyzed by their facial recognition software. According to a blog post by the company,[2] the application uses ethnicity detection algorithms to "measure subtleties in the physical characteristics" of millions of processed photographs estimate a person's ethnic background.
