It was only a matter of time before the woke mob came for C-3PO.
While most would likely assume a machine cannot have a race, the researchers said that they do indeed have “racial identities” influenced by “real world” stereotypes.
These “racial identities” can be found in both the fact that AIs and depictions of AIs have caucasion features and also typically talk in “standard white middle-class English,” including voices given to smartphone technology. The study suggests “black dialects” have been avoided because they are deemed “too controversial or outside the target market.”
Because society has “for centuries, promoted the association of intelligence with white Europeans,” the researchers argue that artificial intelligence and machines are given white characteristics to feed into the racial biases of both users and creators.
As always with retards, everything is backwards.
These characteristics are used to “justify colonialism and segregation,” according to the researchers.
If “white voices” in machines and think pieces on Jar Jar Binks sound far-fetched, the study does try to present a real world consequence to this perceived bias: these depictions in AI “exacerbate racial inequality” and make it more difficult for non-white people to get into and ahead in tech.
“In cases where these systems are racialized as white, that could have dangerous consequences for humans that are not,” Dr. Kanta Dihal, lead researcher in the study, said. “The perceived whiteness of AI will make it more difficult for people of color to advance in the field.”
Sometimes, I think SJW’s have a “word bank” for their published research papers. Such words would include “Colonialism”, “Inequality,” and “Systemic.”
I can’t wait to see C-3PO speak in a Sanford & Son dialect. You know Disney is already working on it.
