Technology has racial biases—and its human developers are responsible

Implicit bias is a problem for humans, and humans are programming it into computer algorithms. Meredith Broussard is an associate professor at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute of New York University and research director at the NYU Alliance for Public Interest Technology. She joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why net neutrality is a myth, the racism and ableism built into systems, and why A.I. needs more diverse human role models. Her book is “More than a Glitch: Confronting Race, Gender, and Ability Bias in Tech.”
