Sorry, Dave, I can't code that: AI's prejudice problem

There is a flip side...

Playing Devil's advocate here - maybe there is very little bias in the algorithms but as the outcomes don't match the biased expectations of the observers, that is the actual reason they are calling foul.

I don't know the state of bias that has been coded into AI, but then, I don't think that these researchers do either. I have an inherent distrust of 'researchers' whose basic assumption sets essentially have a pre-determined outcome for their research.
