Facial Recognition Systems Are Even More Biased Than We Thought

This article lost me at "these systems are built by homogenous teams mostly consisting of white men."

The resulting study shows that all of these real-world algorithms have significantly lower accuracy when evaluating dark female faces than any other type of face. It’s troubling proof that the AI already at work in our daily lives is deeply biased–and that we need to demand greater diversity in the people who build these algorithms and more transparency about how they work.
