Another AI Technology Is Problematically Racist

Facial-detection technology that Amazon is marketing to law enforcement often misidentifies women, particularly those with darker skin, according to researchers from MIT and the University of Toronto.

Privacy and civil rights advocates have called on Amazon to stop marketing its Rekognition service because of worries about discrimination against minorities. Some Amazon investors have also asked the company to stop out of fear that it makes Amazon vulnerable to lawsuits.

The researchers said that in their tests, Amazon’s technology labeled darker-skinned women as men 31 percent of the time. Lighter-skinned women were misidentified 7 percent of the time. Darker-skinned men had a 1 percent error rate, while lighter-skinned men had none.

“labeled darker-skinned women as men 31 percent of the time”

There are a couple factors involved here, and neither has anything to do with “racism”.

The AI uses human inputs, at least at the start, so it’s subject to human perception. Across all races, men tend to be darker than their same-race women. The AI is picking up on this, misidentifying some dark-skinned women as men.

And, more darkly, the darker races of women may not be, how to put this nicely, as….feminine…as the lighter-skinned races of women. The AI is also picking this up; the less feminine dark-skinned women are being misidentified as men because they are mannish looking.

Reality has a racialist bias, but that doesn’t make it false. Shitlibs are just gonna have to deal with the fact that race is more real than their feelings.

    Labels dark-skinned women as men. This is nothing.

    Labeling dark-skinned as bonobos. Now we’re talking.

    I don’t support AI generally, but I could get behind this for entertainment value alone.

        Not really.  Only Africans have the tendency to chew other people’s faces off, and their explosions of acting out have been tagged with the very apt label of “chimping out”.

        Europeans and NE Asians are quite capable of massive deadly violence, but those episodes tend to be (a) rare because they are generally (b) organized and channeled to relatively constructive purposes, namely warfare to take territory.  African mayhem is random and senseless.  You won’t find any stories in the US press of non-Africans killing each other over the last chicken wing, the last pork chop, taking a cookie or the “right” recipe for purple drank.

        You don’t have to buy anything.

        Blacks naturally conspire with each other and vote 90+ Democratic.

        For Jews in the US you see 75+ voting for one party. The remainder are likely just worried about high tax, maintaining some pull on the mainstream right so that the US military (made up of gullible white troops controlled by compromised politicos) will defend Israel. Example: Ben Shapiro.

        That is conspiracy (breathing together) on its face.

        However, with all the problems that those communities are facing (mostly due to internal dysfunction rather than external forces such as racism), we can still look at the past and see the black families used to be functional.

  9. In Western Culture we don’t like people who cover their faces, it’s considered anti-social and associated with criminals hiding their identity.
    When we’re in public we like to read faces to determine danger and in that fraction of a second can sort of sum up if the person looks crazy or dangerous.
    It’s a lot harder to read blacks due to their skin colour which may account for them looking more menacing.(aside from what we know about crime)
    They say that in shelters it’s harder to get black dogs adopted. Now dogs have lived with man for thousands of years and they have the facial muscles (unlike cats that have the same stupid face) to make a variety of expressions and may have even learned to copy humans and I guess manipulate humans by making cute faces to get attention or food.
    I’ve found that it’s harder to read black dogs than lighter ones which may account for them not getting adopted as quickly.
    We may not be able to relate to someone if we can’t read their face easily, and this may include dogs too.

      • I think it’s just harder to read black faces. And the colour black is just more menacing to people because it’s the colour of night.
        Perhaps under the bright vertical light where they originated they’re easier to read and a White would look washed out except at close range. In the human facial recognition may be more important than skin colour for protection from sunlight.Many times traits sort of work together.
        There’s really no reason that humans had to be black for sun protection or have melanin in their skin (unless it serves some function we don’t know). Skin could have been white and just reflected the sun’s rays in addition to its chemical composition to not burn.People near the equator could have developed this way but then there’s the facial recognition to consider which may be more important than we believe where burn proof white skin may have made them washed out looking in the bright sun and hard to recognise. While the black offered sun protection and face recognition.

    Nurturing is a female characteristic. Caring for the helpless is a universal yearning given to females. A pet cat or dog helps fill that yearning for many women. But then again, women who date helpless men pursue trouble. It’s common for young women to date “losers.”

    How many fathers end up chasing away pathetic boyfriends their daughters bring home with them? I always wondered why the most beautiful girls in high school wouldn’t date the class president who had his own job, bought his own car, got good grades. He didn’t need to be rescued, that is why.
