Facebook has apologised after an algorithm generated a prompt that asked users if they would like to “keep seeing videos about primates” on a video of black men.
The video, which was shared on the platform by the Daily Mail on 27 June, featured clips of black men in altercations with white civilians and police officers.
The report goes on to state the following:
A spokesperson for the social media giant said on Saturday that the prompt was “clearly an unacceptable error”.
Facebook has disabled the topic recommendation feature as they investigate the cause.
“While we have made improvements to our AI we know it’s not perfect and we have more progress to make. We apologize to anyone who may have seen these offensive recommendations,” the spokesperson said, adding, “We apologize to anyone who may have seen these offensive recommendations.”
A Facebook recommendation feature powered by AI categorized a video of Black men as “about Primates.” It caused uproar & shame among former & current employees.
