Looking for a choice of voices in AI technology
from The New York Times
Jason Mars is an African-American professor of computer science who also runs a tech start-up. When his company's artificially intelligent smartphone app talks, he said, it sounds "like a helpful, young Caucasian female." "There's a kind of pressure to conform to the prejudices of the world" when you are trying to make a consumer hit, he said. "It would be interesting to have a black guy talk, but we don't want to create friction, either. First we need to sell products."
