Q. If machine learning is so smart, how come AI models are such racist, sexist homophobes? A. Humans really suck

You give a computer some key, value pairs:

vals[E_WHITE] = 80;

vals[E_BLACK] = 70;

vals[E_GREEN] = 20;

And then when you type in:

if(vals[E_WHITE] > vals[E_BLACK])

{

printf("Kick up a shitstorm!\n");

}

The "media" gets surprised at the result?

... Didn't Arnold state it quite correctly during Terminator 3... "I'm just a machine [garbage in garbage out]!"
