I don't understand why people are surprised by this. AIs are written by people with bias, tested by people with bias, and trained on data sets that contain biases. Why are we shocked that the AIs end up biased? Seems a foregone conclusion to me until we can figure out a better way for them to work.

@mike We have been discussing this with recruitment. If you Big Data your way to a database of successful recruitment, you will quickly run into some pretty heavy bias going back.

@Mike Stone @nigel ⌨️ The most amusing part is that there are people working on auditing software to determine if your AI has bias. Written of course by people with bias.
