Computers can identify you by your dance moves

Researches in Finland tried to figure out if a machine learning algorithm could pick out musical genres based on the way people were dancing. They found something else:

While the algorithm didn’t perform very well at picking the genre of music – its best results were identifying metal and jazz with 53% and 35% accuracy respectively – it could correctly identify which dancer was shaking their tail feather 94% of the time.

Who had “The robots will challenge us to dance battles during the uprising” on their end-of-the-world bingo card?
