Image recognition services have made offensive classifications of minorities, chatbots have adopted hate speech, and Amazon’s technology failed to recognize users with darker skin colors. The biases of systems built by the AI industry can be largely attributed to the lack of diversity within the field itself. This makes it complicated to advance the industry with equal benefit to society as a whole. Given that most of the world’s population is “darker skinned” — this provides an enormous exploitive opportunity, in my opinion. We’ll also lack accurate data on certain cultural groups, their biases and values, if this doesn’t change.
