Twitter图像算法更倾向于Windows手机和XSX 而非iPhone和PS5

据外媒OnMSFT报道,上周Twitter因其用来生成照片预览的神经网络似乎偏向于显示白人面孔而非黑人面孔而引发关注。这并不是用户第一次注意到这样的算法怪癖,因为众所周知,Twitter缩略图会放大图像中的任何文字或面孔,而不是其他部分,无论实际主体是什么。然而这是第一次,至少对于大多数用户群来说,首选种族的话题被大范围讨论。

Twitter后来证实,他们非常重视此事,并希望从平台上删除这种无意的偏见。

虽然科技领域的种族偏见是一个非常严肃的话题,但讨论已经让位于平台上一些公认的有趣的病毒式实验,涉及用户比较帖子中的各种主题,看看算法决定什么更重要。

其中一个更有趣的帖子是下面这个 (由于即将到来的算法变化,可能会改变其外观的截图) ,这表明与苹果的iPhone相比,Twitter算法更倾向于显示微软的停产Windows手机.

虽然Windows 10 Mobile可能已经不复存在,但至少该平台的粉丝们看到了这条推文。

好奇之下,OnMSFT记者Brad Stephenson决定自己用索尼PlayStation 5游戏机和微软Xbox Series X的图片做一个对比,结果表明Twitter更倾向于显示微软Xbox Series X。
