The US Army Research Laboratory gave a $1,500,000 three-year grant to two associate professors to develop what's being called a "fully automated luxury microaggression detector" Alexa-like device to "catch implicit bias" in workplaces across America.
From NorthEastern.edu, "Could a smart device catch implicit bias in the workplace?":
Despite the growing adoption of implicit bias training, some in the field of human resources have raised doubts about its effectiveness in improving diversity and inclusion within organizations."One step closer to a fully automated luxury microaggression detector," psychology professor Geoffrey Miller commented. "Coming soon to your schools, workplaces, and public spaces."
This is beyond parody.
The pair have received a $1.5 million, three-year grant from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to study teams using a combination of social science theories, machine learning, and audio-visual and physiological sensors.Imagine getting a $1.5 million grant from the US Army Research Laboratory to create a mansplaining detector and thinking you're oppressed.
There are some challenges that the researchers expect to face. For one, says Welles, it's anyone's guess how knowledge of the presence of such a device in a room will affect how its occupants interact with one another. Another unpredictability, she says, is how subjects will respond to any errors that the device makes.Indeed, it's literally impossible to predict how men will feel having a microaggression detector spying on them at all times for crimes against wokeness!
