Is Google Glass racist?
From my experience, the answer is a resounding yes!
With the onslaught of new technologies today, humans from all backgrounds have voiced their displeasure about the extreme prejudice and insensitive encounters they have experienced with high-tech devices.
A cute feature of Google Glass is the ability to message a friend or perform a Google search purely by talking to your device – no physical interaction is needed throughout the whole process, which ironically does not save time as you spend minutes trying to correct the speech to text errors.
Below is a video demonstrating the outcome of Google Glass’s voice recognition software by emulating people of various backgrounds as they attempt to speak English with different accents.
As you can see from the video, Google Glass is indeed racist. The Australians, Irish, and Chinese have the toughest time. The real question is will we humans just stand there and become slaves to our blatantly discriminatory tech overlords? In the Terminator series, John Connor was wrong when he said there was nothing worse than SkyNet – a racist SkyNet. Disclaimer: This is satire. If you didn’t realize that, I feel bad for you son – you got 99 problems and satire is one.
