BiPiSci: Skeptic Check: Data Bias (9-7-2019)

Playlist for Show: Big Picture Science

Hosts: Seth Shostak and Molly Bentley

Sexist snow plowing? Data that guide everything from snow removal schedules to heart research often fail to consider gender. In these cases, “reference man” stands in for “average human.” Human bias also infects artificial intelligence, with speech recognition triggered only by male voices and facial recognition that can’t see black faces. We question the assumptions baked into these numbers and algorithms.
