We Only Complain About Whitewashing When The Movie Sucks
Whitewashing in movies remains an ongoing problem, but at least we seem to be getting better at calling it out. Remember what happened with the live-action Ghost In The Shell, which cast Scarlett Johansson as an Asian character? Pop culture sites like Collider and IndieWire called it racist, reviews ripped into it for its erasure of an iconic (among anime nerds) Asian heroine, and it was widely trolled on Twitter by everyone who was even vaguely aware of the

However, examples of gender, economic, occupational and racial bias exist in communities, industries and social contexts around the world. And while there are people leading initiatives to fundamentally change these phenomena in the physical world, it persists and manifests in new ways in the digital world.  In the tech world, bias permeates everything from startup culture to investment pitches during funding rounds to the

Inside the First Church of Artificial Intelligence
Anthony Levandowski makes an unlikely prophet. Dressed Silicon Valley-casual in jeans and flanked by a PR rep rather than cloaked acolytes, the engineer known for self-driving cars—and triggering a notorious lawsuit—could be unveiling his latest startup instead of laying the foundations for a new religion. But he is doing just that. Artificial intelligence has already inspired billion-dollar companies, far-reaching research programs, and scenarios of both transcendence and doom.

The verdict across the board is that the front and rear glass panels on the $1,000 flagship phone are extremely easy to shatter, despite Apple’s claim that it’s “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone.” The first test comes from CNET, which dropped the iPhone X onto
