“Changing algorithms is easier than changing people: software on computers can be updated; the “wetware” in our brains has so far proven much less pliable. None of this is meant to diminish the pitfalls and care needed in fixing algorithmic bias. But compared with the intransigence of human bias, it does look a great deal simpler. Discrimination by algorithm can be more readily discovered and more easily fixed.”
