Beware of stereotypes in Machine Learning.

TIL about stereotypes in ML

  1. Turkish is a genderless language which has one pronoun, “o” to convey a singular third person
  2. Translating the English sentence “he is a nurse and she is a doctor” to Turkish and back to English can yield the stereotypical and incorrect as “she is a nurse and he is a doctor”

Of course other translations exist as well:

source:’s a nurse. She’s a doctor.
source: bir hemşire. O bir doktor.
