MIT Thinks They Have Found A Way To Automatically ‘De-Bias’ Face Detection

How technology and AI learns is by humans teaching it what’s correct. This is how facial recognition software works where humans need to teach it how to recognize faces, and also teach it not to be biased.

Prosthetic Legs Tuned Using AI Can Help Patients Walk Better, Faster

We imagine that putting on a prosthetic limb for the first time ever can be rather disconcerting. This means that patients tend to take time to get used to it, to walking around, and potentially even running.
