NPR just published an article that says: “Facial recognition software sold by Amazon mistakenly identified 28 members of Congress as people who had been arrested for crimes, the American Civil Liberties Union announced on Thursday. Amazon Rekognition has been marketed as tool that provides extremely accurate facial analysis through photos and video.” Fred Simkin posted the following comment:
Decisions require judgment. Judgment is a product of “knowledge” not just more “data”. The piece is an excellent example of the fallacy of the data only approach implicit in DL and ML. NN based solutions are excellent filters in hybrid applications, but decisions and actions must be the purview of a knowledge based representation schema component.
