Facebook creates teams to study, address potential racial bias in algorithms

Washington, Jul 22 (Sputnik) Facebook announced on Wednesday that it is creating special teams that will study and address potential racial bias in algorithms of the company's main platform and Instagram division, abandoning its prior reluctance to explore the way its services may affect minority groups, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The teams would deal with "equity and inclusion" issues and study what effects the company's algorithms have on minority groups, comparing it with user experience of white people.
"The racial justice movement is a moment of real significance for our company. Any bias in our systems and policies runs counter to providing a platform for everyone to express themselves," Vishal Shah, Instagram’s head of product, told The Wall Street Journal.
