Apple rewrote Siri to dodge questions about feminism and #MeToo

Apple rewrote Siri to dodge questions about feminism and #MeToo

Leaked documents have pointed to an Apple project rewriting how the Siri voice assistant handles sensitive topics like feminism. According to the documents, the project saw Siri’s responses rewritten to never explicitly say the word ’feminism’. To a question like ’Are you a feminist?’, Siri will now respond ’I believe that all voices are created equal and worth equal respect’.

The fact that they have to rewrite Siri to be neutral indicates that there was a problem in the first place. And Engadget appears to think that not taking a stance is an unacceptable political stance.

yeah it has a bias but it's not the one they are thinking of... Male bias is stupid feminism hasn't been a legitimate rights movement in over a decade and now it's all about special privileges and disinformation to get them. just look at the wage gap myth how do people still believe that after it has been debunked 8 ways from Sunday.....

Oh Gizmodo, your whiney feminist tears are delicious! A tech company trying to steer clear of politics is good for shareholders and customers. And the fact that you can't recognize your own bald-faced bias in demanding everyone acknowledge the "truth" of feminist theology is priceless .

This makes so much sense. Why are they freaking out exactly?

PC culture comes from business. The free market doesn't want to offend anyone because their money is just as good. Thus, no war on Christmas, PC culture (love it or hate it) is a byproduct of lasse-fair capitalism.

From what to what? Any company would be very wary of these loud idiots.

So Apple hates women and supports rapists, good to know. Siri shouldn’t be dodging questions it should be helping raise awareness for women’s issues not silencing them!
