Investigator: Computer why did you drive into that black person
Computer: I saw nothing. No humans
Investigator: What did you see?
Computer: There was nothing there, just some apes.
Self Driving cars have become a self driving NIGHTMARE for black people as more and more of these SMART cars drive straight at Negros.
“I was Walkin along MLK parkway, and this Tesla, Man it drove straight at me. I had to jump like a Kangaroo, like a freakin Kanga man, or I’d be splat”
Said one Negro who barely escaped the encounter with his life. What’s Going on? Apparently the computers are struggling with Negros just like they did with searches for “Gorillas” on Google.
f you’re a person with dark skin, you may be more likely than your white friends to get hit by a self-driving car, according to a new study out of the Georgia Institute of Technology. That’s because automated vehicles may be better at detecting pedestrians with lighter skin tones.
The researchers analyzed how often the models correctly detected the presence of people in the light-skinned group versus how often they got it right with people in the dark-skinned group.
The result? Detection was five percentage points less accurate, on average, for the dark-skinned group. That disparity persisted even when researchers controlled for variables like the time of day in images or the occasionally obstructed view of pedestrians.
The report, “Predictive Inequity in Object Detection,” should be taken with a grain of salt. It hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed. It didn’t test any object-detection models actually being used by self-driving cars, nor did it leverage any training datasets actually being used by autonomous vehicle manufacturers. Instead, it tested several models used by academic researchers, trained on publicly available datasets. The researchers had to do it this way because companies don’t make their data available for scrutiny — a serious issue given that this a matter of public interest.
