WASHINGTON: Twitter said Friday it would offer a cash “bounty” to users and researchers to help root out algorithmic bias on the social media platform.
The San Francisco tech firm said this would be “the industry’s first algorithmic bias bounty competition,” with prizes up to $3,500.
The competition is based on the “bug bounty” programs some websites and platforms offer to find security holes and vulnerabilities, according to Twitter executives Rumman Chowdhury and Jutta Williams.
“Finding bias in machine learning models is difficult, and sometimes, companies find out about unintended ethical harms once they’ve already reached the public,” Chowdhury and Williams wrote in a blog post.
“We want to change that.”
They said the hacker bounty model offers promise in finding algorithmic bias.
“We’re inspired by how the research and hacker communities helped the security field establish best practices for identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in order to protect the public,” they wrote.
“We want to cultivate a similar community… for proactive and collective identification of algorithmic harms.”
The move comes amid growing concerns about automated algorithmic systems, which, despite an effort to be neutral, can incorporate racial or other forms of bias.
Twitter, which earlier this year launched an algorithmic fairness initiative, said in May it was scrapping an automated image-cropping system after its review found bias in the algorithm controlling the function.
The messaging platform said it found the algorithm delivered “unequal treatment based on demographic differences,” with white people and males favored over Black people and females, and “objectification” bias that focused on a woman’s chest or legs, described as “male gaze.”
Everything We Expect at Samsung Unpacked, From Galaxy Z Fold 4 to Galaxy Watch 5 – CNET
Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event. We expect to see several new versions of the company’s and smartwatches to be revealed — but there’s always a chance for surprise launches of new devices.
The event invitation seen above, showing a Z Flip foldable phone, suggests we’ll see new versions of Samsung’s foldables. That fits with afrom tipster Evan Blass predicting new versions of the and the clamshell which came out in August 2021.
Don’t expect too many big advances with Samsung’s next foldables. Rumors suggest the tablet-sizemay have a new hinge and slimmer build, but the leaker jury is out on whether it will include an S Pen slot like the . Other rumors predict that the foldable will pack the faster Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset, as well as a larger outer display that requires its own under-display camera to complement the one on the inner screen.
The makeup compact-lookingcould get a larger cover display, according to other rumors, which could make it far more useful for reading notifications and previewing selfie photos.
Even if the new foldables have only incremental spec upgrades, the biggest improvement could be price. Thewas cheaper than its predecessor at $1,800 (£1,599, AU$2,499) to start, which is still around twice as expensive as most premium smartphones. The shockingly came in at $1,000 (£949, AU$1,499), or around the price of an iPhone 13 Pro, making it the most affordable foldable yet and a viable alternative to standard flat smartphones.
But the upcoming Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 could be even cheaper, predicts analyst Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who tweeted that Samsung ramped up production to churn out twice as many of the new foldables as last year’s models, suggesting a possible price cut.
In any case, we expect the new foldables to sell well, since the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3than were sold in all of 2020. With 88% of the more than 7 million foldables sold in 2021, Samsung is in a strong position to continue dominating the niche foldable market, which is to over 27 million sold in 2025.
Samsung could launch other products to accompany the foldables, and the most likely is the. Rumors predict the next version of the premium smartwatch line could get a body temperature sensor and better battery life, as well as an updated design. Hopefully, it will also fix a glaring flaw in the — no support for iPhones — as well as better integration of Wear OS 3, as we felt last year’s watch pulled between .
There are other things Samsung could show off, like successors to theearbud, tablets or laptops, but we haven’t heard many rumors suggesting any of those are likely to arrive. Still, we could easily be surprised with all eyes on the awaited foldables.
To encourage customers to reserve their phones early, from July 19 until August 10,based on different bundles, from a maximum of $200 off for those reserving a Galaxy phone, watch, and buds down to a minimum of $30 off for just reserving Galaxy buds. While this could be a hint at what’s coming at Unpacked, the savings could apply to older Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Buds models.
The event is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT. CNET will be watching and covering the reveals.
