I propose that AI bias from a dataset obviously not statistically representative of the real world be called giraffing. ie "that bot is severely giraffed"

if you're not sure what's with AI and giraffes, the issue is that giraffes are *severely* overrepresented in photos compared to the real world as a whole because everyone thinks giraffes are interesting

as a result, computer vision systems pretty much universally believe that giraffes are everywhere and they should expect to see them in any random image

now, this bias also applies to thousands of other things that are over or under represented in photos. which is why you should always be suspicious. but giraffes are such a clear, easy to understand case of how and why AI is biased.

I feel like this is rapidly approaching trying to teach AI social skills. "Look, AI, just because you love giraffes, because you were raised on them... does NOT mean everyone wants to hear you talk about giraffes all day."

You can check this history of mistaking random vertical objects for giraffes, which includes one real giraffe and one giraffe print dress

I may be severely giraffed in a couple ways

there's also the whole "nobody asks about giraffes in photos where there aren't any" thing

But............what if the giraffes ARE everywhere and we just didn’t notice? I am glad that induced bias in algorithms is current talking point, I am also concerned that with evolved algorithms we’re not going to be able to understand them when conducting investigations

Giraffing manifests partially in a higher base rate of giraffe's, but also in biasedly long necks and biased spotting. Giraffing is pernicious because it's covariate shift in both your features and your classes.
