In 1966, the United Nations declared March 21 the "International Day to Overcome Racial Discrimination." Today - 55 years later - stigmatization based on skin colour, origin or gender is still a reality for many affected people. Even artificial intelligence (AI), which is actually considered rational, is not immune to prejudice. This is what scientists at the University of Paderborn have found out. In a video, computer scientist Jun.-Prof. Dr. Henning Wachsmuth explains how it could come to this, what influence crime statistics have and what possibilities there are to make AI free of prejudice.
