AI company Clarifai says its new face recognition technology won’t be racist

Clarifai is offering its Demographics model in beta, and inviting people to make it better. Anyone can upload images, or URLs that point to images, to see the results it comes up with and provide feedback. I uploaded a silly photo that I use for my Twitter profile. It was dead right on my gender and very close on age (unfortunately) but only 38% sure that I’m white. So I clicked the Feedback button and checked the “white” option. It’s too early to know how well Clarifai’s new service will work, but it’s a welcome effort to right a troubling technical wrong in today’s AI. SC
