Hanlon's Razor, LDS, Hanlon's Razor...

I think it is much easier to create an inept algorithm that takes curly hair and classifies it as bear fur; instead of writing one that *correctly* identifies the image as a human being and also correctly identifies their race, and then deliberately classifies them as an animal...

It is also funnily ironic to anthropomorphize IA by giving it human traits, such as racism, in an article discussing how IA is not actually intelligent at all
