World Policy On Air, Ep. 108: “Racist in the Machine”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

The world was stunned last year when Tay, Microsoft’s premier Twitter chatbot, evolved from innocent social media consumer to a sexist, racist troll after operating only a few hours. On the latest episode of World Policy On Air, cybersecurity expert Megan Garcia explains why governments and companies must be conscious of the institutional biases picked up by complex algorithms.

Read Megan Garcia’s piece “Racist in the machine: The disturbing implications of algorithmic bias” in the winter Interrupted issue of World Policy Journal.
