Is AI Racist?

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

When prompting DALLE to visualize good and bad men we are not confronted with strong racial biases as feared and when we search for a terrorist we have no race associated to it. Sigh! Way to gain hope in humanity and the future of AI.

AI-bias studies for racism from dalle-mini

I ran a few tests but not enough from a scholar to have a statistically significant outcome. In the case for women, however, the bias does not seem racial as much as it is a status bias.

Wealthier women seem to have better luck at passing the AI judgement of goodness while poorer, underdressed women making faces look bad in the lens of AI. I wonder why!

Good and Bad Women according to AI from dalle-mini

Extensive studies as such should be funded as a priority and I will be happy to help make sure that the future of AI will be ethical with as few biases as possible.
