Racial Sensitivity Better Off Ted

Youtube continues to not like my blog. No hard feelings.

I posted this because it reminded me of how algorithms aren’t always right. Neither is any technology. For example, this clip is from a TV show called Better Off Ted where the company all the characters work at installing a technology that “doesn’t see black people.” It reminded me of Kitchins, “Algorithms then are often ‘out of control’ in the sense that their outcomes are some- times not easily anticipated, producing unexpected effects in terms of their work in the world (Mackenzie, 2005).” (pg. 21)
