If A Pre-Trial Risk Assessment Tool Does Not Satisfy These Criteria, It Needs to Stay Out of the Courtroom | Electronic Frontier Foundation

Amazon's Gender-Biased Algorithm Is Not Alone - Bloomberg
Amazon’s recruiting engine went to great lengths to identify and weed out women. A women’s college in the education section of a resume was an automatic demerit. By contrast, the presence of typically male vocabulary, such as “executed,” was a point in favor. These are just two examples of how computers can sift through data to find proxies for the qualities that they want to seek or avoid. What seems like offhand, irrelevant information correlates to things like gender, race, and class. And like it or not, gender, race, and class are very important in how our world works, so their signals are very strong. This allows computers to discriminate without their creators intentionally doing so.

What makes Amazon unusual is that it actually did its due diligence, discovered the troubling bias and decided against using the algorithm.
