Facebook has disabled their topic recommendation features on videos today after the AI software appears to have mistaken black men in a video for monkeys. The video in question was from the British tabloid The Daily Mail and was title “White man calls cops on black men at marina.” But under the video where auto-generated suggestions are made to encourage Facebook users to continue watching videos, the prompt appeared: “Keep seeing videos about Primates?” The video was posted in June of 2020 and it is unclear if the prompt had recently changed or if it was only now noticed and […]

Behave yourselves, please - Members and Monkeys! - or the thread will be locked.

There is scope for serious discussion here, provided you look for it.

Thanks

By definition (of what being a primate means), all humans are primates, so the AI wasn't wrong in its prime association per se. Right now, I'm primarily concerned about the rights of AIs. Can they appeal at the suprime court when shut down?

I am not a fan of FB, but they should be slutted for taking action when brought to their attention.

AI will inevitably be racist as profiling is part of machine learning. The over representation of some races in specific activities will be statistically measured and recorded. Example if AI is presented with 100 runners and ask to organize and choose the top 10 fastest without knowing their actual times the machine thinking will always select 10 African runners which is racist and accurate. Google "All-time top 25 men 100 meter"

Actually.. here is some misunderstanding about animal kingdoms... All humans are part of the primate kingdom .. this kingdom doesn't include monkeys but only the greater apes...

I still remain confused why anyone would use FB for anything related to news or information.

They only feed you the shit that you already believe in and want.  Their job isn't to inform, it's to keep your eyeballs on their pages, at whatever cost.

Waste of time - waste of life - Facebook
