Oh Good: Big Tech Wants to Bring AI to DEI with its Latest Facial Recognition Patent
If you thought that machines or computers couldn't be racist, think again. Adobe is seeking to patent a system for "diversity auditing" using computer vision that will add some AI into diversity, equity, and inclusion. Your new brain surgeon will be chosen not by his qualifications and competence, but by the color of their skin.
Great, let’s destroy meritocracy in the name of equity. That sounds pretty ethical to me.
This system basically uses face detection to break down photos of employees and slot them into categories based on certain physical traits and characteristics. It will then compute a diversity score for the plurality of images based on the distribution.
Does this mean people can no longer pretend to be Native American?
"In our society, generations of systemic biases have led to some professions being more common among certain genders and races," the inventors published in a paper. “The pursuit of a utopian world demands providing content users with an opportunity to present any profession with diverse racial and gender characteristics.”
Basically, the inventors, Mehrab Tanjim, Ritwik Sinha, Krishna Kumar Singh, Sridhar Mahadevan, David Arbour, Moumita Sinha, and Garrison W. Cottrel, want to patent a product in an effort to create their form of Utopia based entirely on the premise that every group should receive the same outcome as every other group. But this ignores the fact that every group to ever exist in all of human history has resulted in different outcomes.
Adobe needs to check its privilege. Who said they could monopolize the workforce like that?
Lowering hiring standards puts our health and safety at risk and will lead to serious implications. But unfortunately, we all know it is already happening.
United Airlines plans to train 5,000 pilots by 2030, all of whom will be guaranteed a job at United. But here is the catch: half the students will be women or people of color.
Look, it’s plane and simple: we need to destroy the left wing in order to land this plane.
