Google Photos Identifies Two Black Users As ‘Gorillas’
[link to sacramento.cbslocal.com]




Google was forced to apologize after its Photos program identified two black users as “gorillas.”

Jacky Alcine, 21, of Brooklyn checked his Google Photos account Sunday and found that the program had automatically generated and labeled a folder titled “Gorillas” for a photo of himself and a friend taken in 2013, Yahoo Tech reports.

The Google Photos image recognition software is intended to identify a photo and automatically file photos into groups with similar images – a photo of a tree would automatically be placed in a folder filled with other photos of trees.


But the software showed a glitch Sunday, prompting Google to apologize for placing the black friends into an automatically generated “gorillas” folder.

Google’s chief architect of social, Yonatan Zunger, responded: “@jackyalcine Thank you for telling us so quickly! Sheesh. High on my list of bugs you *never* want to see happen. ::shudder::”

The computer circuits are seeing basically the same thing we are.

That's why WEAVE is so necessary.

Funny thing about AI and the future....

AI won't be politically correct.

I don't think a lot of people are going to like it.
