More CEOs lately Jack Dorsey’s the social media giant that appears with its statements in the crypto money sector Twitter remained a topic of discussion for a while due to algorithmic problems in its implementation. The algorithm that enables the cropping of the photos is biased and therefore highlighting individuals with white skin, caused a great reaction of the social media giant.
Twitter, which allows photos to be cropped manually, but cannot get away with it, racism started a race to find the biases of his algorithm that caused the controversy. Now we are here with the results of the race.
Younger, brighter and feminine faces are preferred:
Awarded by Twitter Bogan Kulynych tested Twitter’s cropping algorithm with artificially enhanced human faces. These developed faces were differentiated from each other by many factors such as skin tone, age and weight. The results obtained from the study in which these different faces were tested, 37 percent lighter skin tone.
Besides, the algorithm 25 percent more feminine than 18 percent, it was also noted that he preferred young-looking faces.
In the study, the algorithm that it has not been thoroughly examined is underlined. In addition, it is not known whether the presence of different backgrounds in the photographs used will give deceptive results. Because the work is done by a single person, it is also a matter of speech whether the person will include his own ideas in the work.
Twitter will be happy with the result that Kulynych with exactly 3500 dollars awarded. If you want to review Kulynych’s work in detail, you can reach the GitHub page here.
