Presumably Google has lots of data on white people's faces; that's why there's a data gap. So I wonder how they got that data, and whether the process was markedly different than the one used here, which I agree was not good. If the process was different (e.g. more transparent for white people), that is certainly an additional problem. If it was the same, then can we say that the project was wrong from the beginning? Or given the history, would it still be fundamentally different to use these tactics on marginalized people?
