Can Algorithms Reduce Racial Bias Rather Than Embed It?

In an excerpt published by Stanford social psychologist, Jennifer Eberhardt delves into the impact of implicit bias in perpetuating segregation and racial discrimination. She explains that more than half of whites say they would not move to an area that is more than 30 percent black, because they “believe that the housing stock would not be well maintained and crime would be high.” Eberhardt adds that “Black people are just as likely as whites to expect signs of disorder in heavily Black neighborhoods.” Explore this article further to learn how technology often embeds these biases in algorithms.
