Google once again was in hot water for its algorthim which meant looking up happy families in image search would return results of happy white famalies.
Of course the last time, Google photos classified black people as gorillas.
Some friends have been debating this and suggested it wasn’t so bad, but its clear that after a few days things were tweaked. Of course Google are one of many who rely on non-diverse training data and likely are coding their biases into the code/algorithms. Because of course getting real diverse training data is expensive and time consuming; I guess in the short term so is building a diverse team in their own eyes?
Anyway here’s what I get when searching for happy families on Friday 2nd June about 10pm BST.
