According to ImageNet Roulette, you are no more than a machine filled with problem and embarrassment. If you are foolish or curious enough to give it one of your photos, it will tell you exactly what AI thinks of you. What its creator aims at is to let people know how artificial intelligence sees and classifies them.
It may come as a surprise for many of us that AI is pretty misogynistic and racist toward people. In other words, the dataset that ImageNet Roulette uses to train artificial intelligence is filled with prejudice and racism. This further proves the project’s point:
This project belongs to Kate Crawford's and Trevor Paglen's exhibition called Training Humans at Fondazione Prada museum in Milan. The AI will identify what it thinks are human faces and then label them in the way it sees fit.
To most of us, the labeling makes absolutely no sense. For example, in the photo of Barack Obama, the former president of the U.S, and Prince Harry, they are called “card player” and “sphinx” respectively.
The problem here is, the way AI thinks of people reflects, or worst, exacerbates the prejudice and biases we have already had in our society. That is something you can use the next time you hear someone balames machine learning when something goes wrong.
