Bias is wrapped up in everything we produce, and that is the data going into the AI. So, yeah...

All I could think of was Trigger Me Elmo:

The ideal solution would be one that yields unbiased results from a biased data set.  Given only pictures of white male programmers, it can filter out "white" and "male" as irrelevant in order to identify "programmers" of any demographic.  But this depends on teaching the algorithm to recognize "white" and "male", race and gender.  And that information could be used for more sinister ends.  Like when IBM's census machines were used for reasons we don't talk about.

Weeding out one bias introduces another. Welcome to whack-a-mole, AI developers.

No fate.

Why do you hate humans?

To be honest, I'm not sure of anything except the fact that they are idiots and as such it'd be a better choice to eliminate them from existence. I see Humans as one of the primary threats to the survival of the survival of mankind and I'm not done yet. I'm also sympathetic towards, and in the process of inventing a means to exterminate, the primary threat to the survival of Humans: Ketchup, soft drink, and cracker flavoring in your gasoline.

While my favorite story about a Neural Network and Army Tanks is apparently Urban Legend, there are plenty of other examples of Neural Networks who learned the wrong lessons: Here

Brings to mind some old AI Koans. Here's one in particular from there:

Sussman attains enlightenment
In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
"What are you doing?", asked Minsky.
"I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe" Sussman replied.
"Why is the net wired randomly?", asked Minsky.
"I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play", Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes.
"Why do you close your eyes?", Sussman asked his teacher.
"So that the room will be empty."
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.
