Small experiment with google image search.
I enter "black teen" and got several hits talking about teens being arrested by police.
I enter "teen" and got a see of white faces, happy and ready to go.
I enter "white teen" and got several hits of white people assaulting black people.
@pandora_parrot I'm not convinced you understand how Google works.
If I Google the same things I get really different results.
Also at the end of the day the search results are determined by an algorithm not a human. Unless someone actually made the algo racist, it's probably just bad input data.
An algorithm is built by humans, and unconscious bias is a thing (see many facial recognition wrt to only using the devs as the rest faces (predominantly cis white men) www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2019/12/19/federal-study-confirms-racial-bias-many-facial-recognition-systems-casts-doubt-their-expanding-use )
I agree that the algorithms are built by humans and that humans can have a racist bias.
I'm not intending to defend Google, but I think if anything the bias is more on the side of the end-users who are feeding data into the algorithm every time they search for X and click on Y.
