TOPIC: We Now Have Racist, Sexist Robots
First two paragraphs:
"As part of a recent experiment, scientists asked specially
programmed robots to scan blocks with people’s faces on them, then
put the 'criminal' in a box. The robots repeatedly chose a block
with a Black man’s face.
Those virtual robots, which were programmed with a popular
artificial intelligence algorithm, were sorting through billions of
images and associated captions to respond to that question and
others, and may represent the first empirical evidence that robots
can be sexist and racist, according to researchers. Over and over,
the robots responded to words like 'homemaker' and 'janitor' by
choosing blocks with women and people of color."
