Object-recognition AI – the dumb program's idea of a smart program: How neural nets are really just looking at textures

No surprise...

It's how a site I upload sometimes image to tags them - the curly hairs of a black model have been tagged as "bear fur" - which is quite racist also. In another a man with a white beard and dressed in black was tagged "skunk" - which is quite offensive too....

At least it was good I can see tags, but not the people I share the albums with. Most of other tags are very off the mark too - my photo are not exactly common "snapshots" so I guess systems trained from far more generic images fail spectacularly as soon as the images are outside their knowledge - and yes, it looks biased on textures.
