Top Google Exec Warns Against Biases of Facial Recognition Technology
Google’s director of cloud computing, Diane Greene, recently told in an interview that facial recognition technology still has inherent biases and does not yet have the diversity it needs. The comment came after Amazon’s software wrongly identified 28 members of Congress, disproportionately people of colour, as police suspects.
Greene also said that Google is still improving the reliability of its facial recognition technology by gathering vast sums of data. While the firm’s technology is currently being used to help identify friends in pictures, it is still not open for public use.
