The artificial intelligence used with hospital software, which assigns seriously ill patients to more intensive care, is more likely to ignore our needs. Insurance companies then use this information to cut costs around paying for medical procedures for us.
Our people are more likely to be considered “risky” when it comes to home loans than white people, in part because of the algorithms found in the artificial intelligence used to rate borrowers. This means we get more expensive, lower-quality loans - if we get a loan at all.
Several cities across the nation have used artificial intelligence to predict “high crime” areas - which usually means where our people live. Some software packages have even encouraged the use of force and brutality against our people in our own communities.
Facial recognition software has mistakenly matched our people to mugshots of wanted criminals, even white ones!
The bottom line is artificial intelligence is not always used in a way beneficial for us. If we want to see justice online, we must continue our fight to gain it offline!
