"Uncovering the Dangers of AI Bias in Facial Recognition Technology"

Attention business professionals! As technology continues to advance, it's important to remember that not all artificial intelligence (AI) is suitable for every use. In fact, one of the biggest concerns with AI is its use in facial recognition technology. Scientific American reports that despite improvements in deep-learning techniques, most facial recognition algorithms struggle to identify people other than white men. This has been supported by numerous studies, yet the technology is still being used by law enforcement agencies and private enterprises. A prime example of the dangers of AI bias in facial recognition is the case of Rite-Aid. In 2012, the pharmacy chain implemented a recognition system to identify potential shoplifters and criminals. As expected, the system mainly identified non-white men. As a result, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has banned Rite-Aid from using the technology for five years. The director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection, Samuel Levine, stated that Rite-Aid's use of facial surveillance caused harm to customers and violated orders, putting sensitive information at risk. While AI bias in marketing may not lead to false arrests, it can have a significant impact on data quality and ultimately, your bottom line. Check out our article for tips on how to prevent this.
