Google has discreetly updated its algorithms to include more photographs of non-white people when searching for images, according to Bloomberg.
The new manipulation focuses on searches on the theme of beauty. Users looking for things like “beautiful skin” and “professional hairstyle”, “woman” or “happy family” should get more pictures of non-white world people.
“We have begun launching an enhancement of Google Images to promote a greater variety of skin tones so that more people can get relevant and useful results,” a Google spokeswoman said in a statement.
“We are in the early stages of this work and continue to experiment to offer greater diversity in results.”
At the same time, Google announces that it is developing its camera technology to promote “diversity”. According to the internet giant, camera technology has previously been racist.
