Re: You can "dehumanize" robots?

As a well-intentioned but imperfect human, it makes more sense for me to assume that I have biases that I might be aware of - and try to fix them them - than it does for me to assume I'm perfect already.

We meatbags are complex adaptive information gathering systems, and if we're aware of the myriad ways that the information that reaches may be skewed, and also that we don't live in the same circumstances in which our perceptive tools evolved, it seems that biases are not only possible but very likely.
