A new investigative video by Project Veritas is presenting evidence of bias, censorship and ‘narrative control’ via Google’s Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) learning system called ML Fairness or Machine Learning fairness.
After President Trump’s election, the Google whistleblower interviewed by Project Veritas claims, “Slowly they started introducing the concept of machine learning fairness.”
In the video, James O’Keefe states, “What we learned is that A.I. is increasingly what Google search is all about.”
In addition to the Google whistleblower, Project Veritas filmed undercover video of Jen Gennai, Head of Responsible Innovation at Google, where she spoke about why the company launched A.I. principles, “…people were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable so we we’re like, we’ll we are a big company, we’re going to say it.”
Gennai continued by giving her definition of fairness stating, “My definition of fairness and bias specifically talks about historically marginalized communities….Communities who are in power and have traditionally been in power are not who I’m solving fairness for.”
It is now a fact that Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google-owned YouTube have public policies and internal directives to actively censor and/or influence the online vaccine debate thought various methods. Does Google consider only pro-vaccine messaging to be ‘fair’?
Why can’t Gennai and her colleagues see the disconnect here? In openly censoring and technologically stifling the online vaccine debate, as Google and its subsidiaries such as YouTube are doing, they are ‘solving fairness’ for perhaps the most monopolized, known criminal community who has been ‘in power’ for over a century – Big Pharma.
Meanwhile, the Google insider said this about the company’s ‘fairness’ agenda:
“fairness is a dog whistle. It does not mean what you think that it means and you to apply doublethink in order to understand what they’re really saying.”
A internal document leaked by the Google whistleblower states:
“In some cases it may be appropriate to take no actions if the system accurately affects current reality, while in other cases it may be desirable to consider how we might help society reach a more and equitable state via product intervention.”
Although Google has not openly released a statement a YouTube spokesperson in a statement to Buzzfeed said “we have strict policies that govern what videos we allow ads to appear on, and videos that promote anti-vaccination content are a violation of those policies. We enforce these policies vigorously, and if we find a video that violates them, we immediately take action and remove ads.”
