Study: 'Disastrous' lack of diversity in AI industry perpetuates bias

from The Guardian

The AI field, which is overwhelmingly white and male, is at risk of replicating or perpetuating historical biases and power imbalances, researchers say in a new report published by a New York University research center. Examples cited include image recognition services making offensive classifications of minorities, chatbots adopting hate speech, and Amazon technology failing to recognize users with darker skin colors. The biases of systems built by the AI industry can be largely attributed to the lack of diversity within the field itself, the report said — more than 80% of AI professors are men, and only 15% of AI researchers at Facebook and 10% of AI researchers at Google are women. more
