Google's Algorithms are Bigoted Racists!
They don't grow up that way, but they evolve with stereotypes, because of 'bad people'.

Oh the liberal left will have fun with this one.

[link to www.theguardian.com (secure)]

For example, when Harvard professor Latanya Sweeney found that Google searches for names perceived to be black generated ads associated with criminal activity, we can assume that there was no Google engineer writing racist code. In fact, the ads were trained to be bad by previous users of Google search, who were more likely to click on a criminal records ad when they searched for a black sounding name.

Another example: the Google image search result for “unprofessional hair”, which returned almost exclusively black women, is similarly trained by the people posting or clicking on search results throughout time.

SNIP "Or consider Google’s system for automatically tagging photos. It had a consistent problem whereby black people were being labelled gorillas."
