Here’s Why Facial Recognition Tech Can’t Figure Out Black People

We need more diversity in tech, not just for the good of tech employees, but for the good of tech consumers. Three black women engineers at the workplace messaging startup Slack — Duretti Hirpa, Erica Baker and Megan Anctil — had a conversation this week about the importance of diversity in tech. A key part of their discussion, which appeared in Tuesday’s edition of the newsletter Lenny Letter , was about how diversity in hiring affects tech companies’ end products. Engineers and programmers make important decisions about the way people experience the products they design, and too often that means gadgets and apps are designed to solve the problems of a limited, affluent part of the population. (This is perhaps why there are a million laundry delivery startups but few businesses disrupting child care.) Several major tech companies including Apple, Twitter and Slack released diversity statistics last year that showed what many had long suspected: Their workforces are overwhelmingly white and male, particularly in technical jobs. Slack’s engineers , for example, are 72 percent white and 82 percent male. That said, women of color make up  9 percent of the engineers at Slack  and half of the company’s women engineers overall.  Baker gave a perfect example of how hiring biases can affect the businesses that sell code and the consumers who buy it: “Every time a manufacturer releases a facial-recognition feature in a camera, almost always it can’t recognize black people. The cause of that is the people who are building these products are white people, and they’re testing it on themselves

The Future Of Voting Could Be A Dystopian Nightmare

Enjoy the craziness of election season while you can: In the future, computers could become so adept at molding your behavior that you won’t really  choose who you vote for anymore. At least, that’s what one robotics expert at Carnegie Mellon University fears. Professor Illah Nourbakhsh  recently appeared on a panel called “Life in 2025” during a conference at MIT . He expressed concern that today’s germs of artificial intelligence technology could evolve into a full-blown disease that infects our political system.  Nourbakhsh envisioned a future where politicians control voters based on their data — the information they create when posting online, using a smartphone and so on.

15 Photos From Astronaut’s Year In Space That Are Out Of This World

When NASA astronaut Scott Kelly returns to Earth on Tuesday night after spending nearly an entire year in space, he will be leaving behind an awesome view of our planet — from the vantage point of the International Space Station. Before Kelly was launched to the space station last year, President Barack Obama commented in his 2015 State of the Union address , “Good luck, Captain. Make sure to Instagram it. We’re proud of you.” Indeed, Kelly not only posted his experiences on Instagram , but he also  tweeted  them and chronicled them on  Facebook  — reportedly sharing about 1,000 images with the world .

(VIDEO) Tech Stack ‘Fiefdoms’ Will Consolidate, According To MediaMath, Videology & Google

VIEQUES, PR — Over the last few years, we have seen an avalanche of new advertising technology solutions come to market, all helping marketers reach consumers – and, arguably, all making their job even more complex. Now we may see an accelerating flurry of mergers and acquisitions, as larger players gobble up vendors to streamline the ecosystem again, a panel convened by Beet.TV discussed… MediaMath  ,CMO Joanna O’Connell Google , Head of Programmatic Media & Platform Sales Videology , North America MD Tim Castree MediaMath’s O’Connell lamented that, too often, ad buying involves planning across multiple separate “fiefdoms” of publishers. “That creates disjointed user experience,” she said, adding that, in this day and age: “What really makes it magical is when you have a unified view of each user as a human, not as a cookie or a device.” O’Connell said the industry is beginning to get a holistic view of consumers, even if it means piecing together different parts of an increasingly voluminous technology “stack”. One way to get unification is through consolidation. “The notion of a single platform, it’s not going to happen,” said Videology’s Castree. “We’re going to see consolidation in three waves” – buy-ups of “point solutions” (single-task tech vendors), aggregation of decisioning technologies and further interoperability

Brazilian Police Detain Facebook Executive For Failing To Meet Court Order

Federal police in Brazil apprehended the vice president of Facebook Inc for Latin America on Tuesday after the company failed to cooperate with judicial orders in an investigation of drug trafficking in Sergipe state. Court officials in Sergipe confirmed the detention of Diego Dzodan and police said he remained in custody for questioning in Sao Paulo state. A Facebook representative declined to comment immediately on the case. Privacy concerns have frequently put Facebook and other Internet giants at odds with Brazilian law enforcement seeking evidence in criminal cases, although the confrontations rarely rise to the prominence of Apple Inc’s current standoff with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. In December, a judge suspended Facebook’s popular WhatsApp phone-messaging service in Brazil for about 12 hours after it failed to comply with two court orders to share information in a criminal case.

Rival Phone Makers Reluctant To Support Apple In FBI Battle

MUMBAI/SINGAPORE (Reuters) – As Apple Inc resists the U.S. government in a high profile stand-off over privacy, rival device makers are, for now, keeping a low profile. Most are Asian companies – the region produces eight of every 10 smartphones sold around the world – and operate in a complex legal, political and security landscape. Only China’s Huawei has publicly backed Apple CEO Tim Cook in his fight to resist demands to unlock an encrypted iPhone belonging to one of those who went on a shooting rampage in San Bernardino, California in December. “We put a lot of investment into privacy, and security protection is key.
