Short Synopsis: Private Island Has Been Focused On AI, With The Goal Of Making Something Entirely With Neural Networks. We’d Hoped It Would Be Coherent And Funny, But We’ve Ended Up With Something Creepier: A Showcase For The Race And Gender Bias Codified Into Many AI Platforms.

Initially, We Wanted To Make Something About The Intersection Of Diversity And AI As It Has Historically Had A Bad Rep. Expecting A Mess Of Corporate Platitudes, After Scratching The Surface We Discovered Something Weirder And Darker. This Shouldn’t Be Surprising, As AI Models Are Generally Trained On Data Scraped From The Internet – And Even In The Most Sanitised Places, The Web Can Be A Pretty Weird And Dark Place. However, As These Systems Write Facebook Posts, Tweets, News, Product Descriptions, Handle Customer Service And Increasingly Become Part Of Our Lives, Anyone Who Isn’t A White, Cis, Western Man Will Experience Bias – And That’s A Problem.

Hopefully, The Next Generation Will Remedy These Problems, As Currently, The Workarounds Are, At Best, Confusing And, At Worst, Toxic.
