Will robots be SEXIST? Scientists are trying to reprogram misogynist machines to take out their bias A study looked at word-embedding algorithms used by computersThese help machines analyse language based on word associationsBut pairings from real world data means they may pick up on stereotypesResearchers are tweaking the code to teach machines to overlook biasesBy Ryan O’Hare for MailOnline Published: 17:37, 17 August 2016 | Updated: 17:37, 17 August 2016 Programmers are trying to teach machines to be less sexist by helping them separate words from stereotypes.While computers may be neutral, unconscious human biases can be reflected in machine learning algorithms to analyse language.Such biases have been shown to have an impact before, where basic programs sorting job applications could end up discriminating against applicants based on key words.But one team in…
