Amazon scraps secret AI recruiting tool that showed bias against women | Reuters
Amazon’s computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period. Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech industry. […] Amazon’s system taught itself that male candidates were preferable. It penalized resumes that included the word “women’s,” as in “women’s chess club captain.” And it downgraded graduates of two all-women’s colleges, according to people familiar with the matter.’


nice demo of algorithmic bias right there. Worrying that there are plenty of other places carrying on with the concept though....
