@aral And with Deep Learning, enforcing discrimination becomes easier than ever before.
You don't even have to spell it out.
Just have less people of a certain skin color in your data set.
Or train your human resources AI using your existing staff.


@wakame @aral It's also perfect to avoid accountability, because we barely understand what happens under the hood so we have no way to pinpoint what's going wrong, we only know that the results are wrong.
