Internet Universe: "Algorithmic injustice"

Big data and artificial intelligence allow us to automate decision-making about questions that humans have always made so far. The problem of using algorithms based on automatic learning is that if these systems draw on databases that contain our society’s racist, xenophobic and sexist biases, the algorithms will ultimately perpetuate and amplify them. How can we prevent this and ensure that they make fair and ethical decisions? Whose responsibility is it? What are the consequences in social terms?
