AI Impact(s)

Bias and discrimination

Microsoft Azure created the machine learning platform for Plataforma Técnologica de Intervención Social in Salta, Argentina, which used bad data (biased, incomplete) for an anti-rights agenda. According to the commissioning party's narratives, if the Ministry has enough information from poor families, conservative public policies can be deployed to predict and avoid abortions by poor women. The public's persistent belief in the infallibility of mathematically-derived algorithms presents another challenge to growing digital rights movements.
