HP Computers Are Racist Posted by Mike on December 21st, 2009 4 Comments »

The face tracking in the “state-of-the-art” HP MediaSmart computer is unable to see Black Desi, but it picks up White Wanda just fine.

    Facial recognition is a very young technology, and the computer is probably depending on the high contrast in colors to track the facial features. The software should be tuned to recognize a black face. However, that doesn’t mean that it does have it.

    Whoever decided this technology was ready for retail was an idiot. Does HP really not have a clue that computers are not just the province of white male geeks anymore?

    Does HP not bring in a single black person to test their facial recognition software? Good god, that makes me not want to buy an HP. Not because it’s a “racist” machine, but because if they were that lazy in testing that piece of software, how lazy were they when they put the rest of the computer together????

    I am certainly not buying HP, because I don’t want to spend a thousand bucks for a machine that is built by a bunch of lazy quality control people.
