Leo mentioned Saturday and before about how slanted to white males face recognition is. He seems to imply that it is due to bias on the makers… Doesn’t that seem unlikely since it is so centered in Silicon Valley? at least intentionally?

Leo also mentioned people being arrested based on facial recognition. I doubt there are arrests being made strictly on facial recognition, but it certainly may be directing law enforcement towards the wrong people. Surely there would have to be more evidence that facial recognition alone.

I think the point he is making here and on his other shows, is the unintentional bias. The dataset used to train the ML algorithms are not diverse enough, just like how many large Silicon Valley companies are not diverse enough.
