Making AI for recruiting unbiased: Laws target AI products
We’ve all seen the stories about Amazon shutting down an AI-powered recruitment system because it discriminated against women.The story made a lot of news because of Amazon, but evidence that products with decision-making capabilities show bias against one or more minority groups has been gathering for some time. Less well known is a recent lawsuit filed by the ACLU against Facebook that alleges the company allowed several employers to target job ads at male users only. The scope of the problem remains unclear. But it’s widespread enough that governments everywhere are stepping in to try and correct it.
