AI assistants like Siri and Alexa spread sexism, says UN report

As per a UNSECO study, feminine-voiced AI helpers, which include Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri, perpetuate the harmful gender stereotype that women are subservient and tolerate being treated poorly. Particularly worrying is that the robots often give ’deflecting, lackluster or apologetic responses’ when insulted, the study noted.
