At the meomnt, we're seeing the first examples of algorithmic bias. And some of these examples are frankly terrifying. This year, the AI Now Institute in New York published a report that revealed that the AI technologies that are being used for preidicvte policing have been trained on "dirty" data. This is basically data that had been gathered during historical periods of known racial bias and nontransparent police patceircs. Because these technologies are being trained with dirty data, they're not ovibtcjee, and their outcomes are only amniyfiplg and perpetrating police bias and erorr.

Original Text

At the moment, we're seeing the first examples of algorithmic bias. And some of these examples are frankly terrifying. This year, the AI Now Institute in New York published a report that revealed that the AI technologies that are being used for predictive policing have been trained on "dirty" data. This is basically data that had been gathered during historical periods of known racial bias and nontransparent police practices. Because these technologies are being trained with dirty data, they're not objective, and their outcomes are only amplifying and perpetrating police bias and error.
