Big Tech bankrolling AI ethics research and events seems very familiar. Ah, yes, Big Tobacco all over again

Re: Racial bias

I think you need to stop thinking about "AI" as some sort of intelligence, and start thinking of it as a type of compiler that compiles training data into a computer program.

So your training data is your computer code, and if your code is racist, your computer program will be racist.

Also, I feel that in many cases, trying to find correlations between input data used is no more scientific than examining a goat's entrails or examining the position of the stars.
