would you say that cars kill people or drivers?

feed in racist data and you will get a racist AI

or are you trying to insinuate that the derivatives and adjustments being made during back-propagation are racist as well?

Weapons of Math Destruction is another good book on the topic

Thanks.

I also considered:

"Do you want Skynet? Because that's how you get Skynet."

"Fred Saberhagen unavailable for comment"

"Green energy proponents say generator connected to Fred Saberhagen's grave could power all of New Mexico"

"They clearly don't watch enough movies at the Pentagon"

"When asked for comment DARPA's Dr. Charles Forbin replied, "Eh, what's the worst that can happen?"
