Google apologizes after photo software tags black people as 'gorillas'

Google has apologized after its new Photos app classified two black friends as 'gorillas’, placing their photos in a special album. The tech giant has since removed the tag from the program, saying it is "genuinely sorry” for the mistake.
The cringeworthy mishap began when New Yorker Jacky Alcine was going through his pictures. Noticing an album titled 'Gorillas,' he clicked on it. But when he opened it, he didn't find any primates. Instead, he saw images of himself and a friend.

Well gorillas do always put their fingers in front of the camera when taking selfies. Known fact. lol

Why do I always get the sushi one? That stuff is nasty.

Actually what they're not telling you is that Google's hi-tech facial recognition software which is used in the photo app GOT IT RIGHT! In other words every single mapping point scanned on that she-boon's mug matched perfectly that of a female gorilla hence it tagged it correctly and placed it in the correct folder!

"The tech giant has since removed the tag from the program" simply means they did just that - removed the tag. The scanning software will still have trouble differentiating so now all scans of she-boons and actual female gorillas will just be placed in a folder together labelled "Miscellaneous" :D

well it is kinda like using the word nigger, niggers can use it but no one else, this is a joke only negroes could play with each other ,when done by jews it is insulting or shouldnt be ,by the way jews invented black face,nigger yalling(jodie fields)it was a type of rascist humor at the expense of black people.but we should all not take this race shit so seriosly because it results in all kinds of idiocy and mal adaptive actions.jews having a genetic makeup of 5 to 15% neanderthal(fact ) should not joke about black people resembling a gorilla as they have no neanderthal genes.but I have seen black people that do have a resemblance facially to a goriolla, now have ytou ever seen anoyther human that resembles an animal of soem sort and why is that not insulting to the whole race of the resembled animal.such as i knew soem one who looked like a weasal, now is the whole half breed bunch a maroons supposed to get all insulted? no it really does not enter the mind in that direction,you a rascist, you a anti semite you a fulla shitta.
