Another AI Robot Turned Racist, This Time At A Beauty Contest

Is it coincidence that these AI gaffes never seem to be against white people? Bernard Harcourt, Columbia University professor of law and political science, said the The Beauty.AI results offer ‘the perfect illustration of the problem’.

Harcourt said:
The idea that you could come up with a culturally neutral, racially neutral conception of beauty is simply mind-boggling.
Humans are really doing the thinking, even when it’s couched as algorithms and we think it’s neutral and scientific.

Only a few months ago, Microsoft’s Tay Twitter robot became incredibly racist. Though the bouts of bot bigotry have prompted jokes and mockery, computer science experts and social justice advocates stress that prejudiced algorithms could have devastating effects for people of colour in many industries.
