Google Engineers Respond Promptly to Photos Facial Recognition Error | Re/code

AI adolescence awkwardness

"Google has advanced more on artificial intelligence than others, infusing the advanced tech into speech and photo recognition as well as natural language processing. (Its trippy neural network construction has yet to be baked into consumer products.) The company is frank that its machine learning abilities still have a way to go. In his exchange on Twitter, Zunger noted how the company was still working on “long-term fixes” for linguistics and image recognition for “dark-skinned faces.”

Google put out this conciliatory statement: “We’re appalled and genuinely sorry that this happened. We are taking immediate action to prevent this type of result from appearing. There is still clearly a lot of work to do with automatic image labeling, and we’re looking at how we can prevent these types of mistakes from happening in the future.”"
