  1. Software can't be racist; that implies that it's conscious. It isn't. However, AI can be a tool developed and used by racists. And it has the potential to be devastating.

  2. I foresee an increased market for summer weight hoodies.

    BTW London has the most surveillance cameras per acre than any where in the world. It is almost impossible to walk through London without there being almost continuous coverage. A few years ago they were working on body carriage and movement identification to get around people going into stores and coming out disguised.

  3. unrelated but…..October 1st tariffs relates to China… and SCOTUS JUST ALLOWED NATIONWIDE ENFORCEMENT OF THIRD-COUNTRY ASYLUM RULE. POUST tweets: "BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!" More winning 🙂

  4. Ai isn’t racist, it uses stats to predict certain outcome… that being said, stats don’t lie. As soon as blacks stop causing crimes, large and petty, then the stats of blacks causing crimes will go down… and the ai will not predict that blacks will commit crimes.

    Before I get all these hate comments, I’m obviously not talking about all blacks, I’m talking about the ones in the statistics that cause harm… and there seems to be a lot of them. Stats don’t lie.

  5. Trump is that low IQ narcissistic child who has never respected anyone, doesn't understand that the world is not black and white, and will love setting the world on fire if it could anyhow help him personally. A dangerous man.

  6. EVERY TIME I SEE THIS BROTHA ON 📺 T.V. HE HAS ON THE EXACT SAME CLOTHES & TINY LIL' BLUE JACKET TOO!!💯💯✌😂😂😂

  7. thing is that any system that depends on a camera, will need light. people with darker skin necessarily need a bit more light to get a clear pix. its a lighting issue. this COULD be compensated for by writhing a software that , when it detects darker skin, it will jack up the "white balance, contrast and/or brightness. not saying this is good or bad, just saying that this would help alleviate the prob of missident. my2¢

  8. the U.K. has CCTV cams all over the place. they have an incredibly low crime rate. most Brits are O.K. with them and even have them , themselves. nothing wrong with having cams, but if your going to use them to find and ident people, you had better make goddamnfucking sure you have the person you want and not someone else.

  9. BTW….AI is artaficial inteligence. stress artaficial. and even now is NO substitue for thew human mind w/ its extra features of imagination, feelings and intuition. HAL was just a machine

  10. To say the AI is racist is hilariously stupid. This is super super dumb.

    I have nothing against black folks, but as a programmer that focuses on AI, the sheer lack of research in this video is just shameful.

  11. The thing with this whole privacy argument is that it is easily solved by putting in place a strict legal system, for instance having a judge have to sign off on a warrant in order for any police officer or detective to see any footage at all. Also, you have just one person who has access to the footage, they would be bonded and if they leaked anything it'd be obvious who leaked it cause only one person would have access. That person receives a warrant signed by a judge and retrieves specific footage and sends it to the requesting detective for their case. All cities should invest in more CCTV camera's and possibly tethered weather balloons that watch from above. Also, every citizen should have their blood type, DNA, fingers and thumb prints on record, including retina scan, and dental records. When bad guys go to jail, the good guy's win and communities become healthier, happier, and more prosperous. It's not a silver bullet by any means, but it is a good enhancement for any neighbourhood.

  12. This guy is the one who is [actually] keeping it real, like when he tells Trump to stay away. (Also real is the way cameras work, it is very hard to get a detailed picture of anything dark when things around it are a lot brighter. Objects that are white reflect light, while dark objects absorb light…so dark objects are essentially an empty spot in the image. The systems using visible light for facial recognition will always struggle with people with darker skin, not because racism, but because the physics of light!)

  13. Prosecute the crime, regardless of race… and if the Black community is over-represented in the crime statistics, well, that's on them…

  14. So what seems to be the point here is that ai computes black people look alike so therefore ai is racist. Perhaps a solution would be if ai received diversity programming.

  15. Reality can be racist. Democratist fanatics like the self styled news networks can't comprehend that and will be left behind as technology advances in ways that are influenced by reality even as they create the unreal. We are seeing the death of this industry of psuedo news precisely because their ideology prohibits reportage with any relationship to the reality faced by real Americans in real America. The coastal elites cannot fathom a world beyond their walled gardens in the midst of a near literal zombie horde of their voters.
