There is something to be said about computers that use logic over emotion. They should be more practical and devoid of some of the less attractive attributes of human nature, namely prejudice, and bias. But are they?

The article below from the New York Times depicts the view of three women working to develop Artificial intelligence. They outline the bias that could creep its way into the technology and some of the impacts it can have.
