Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Amazon for 'bias' in its facial detection technology

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Amazon for what she characterized as 'bias' in the tech giant's facial detection technology. In a tweet, Ocasio-Cortez referenced a study conducted by researchers from MIT and the University of Toronto, that found Amazon's technology labeled darker-skinned women as men 31 percent of the time. Lighter-skinned women were misidentified 7 percent of the time.
