Why is bias in artificial intelligence on technology platforms so dangerous?

Bias in artificial intelligence on technology platforms can be extremely dangerous because it skews what is true and what is not. For example, if a person’s Facebook feed is filled with articles from biased sources, they may start to believe that those are the only true sources. This can lead to people making decisions based on false information or becoming radicalized due to incorrect information.

Additionally, if AI algorithms are biased, they will recommend content that reinforces the user’s biases rather than provide them with a variety of perspectives. This could lead to people becoming more polarized and entrenched in their beliefs instead of being willing to consider other viewpoints. It is therefore crucial that technology companies take steps to ensure that their AI platforms are unbiased so that users can make informed decisions based on accurate information.
