Google’s Algorithmic Bias (Week 10 Final Post)

For my final post in week 10, I chose to look up images of cyber bullying victims using Google Images. The demographics are as follows:

-Of the top 30 search results, 23 were of a similar demographic. These 23 images all depicted girls, somewhere in their early to late teenage years, and usually Caucasian. The image below is a common result.

 

 

Upon further research, these demographics are at least partially accurate. Teens are, by far, the most likely demographic age group to experience cyber bullying. In addition to this, girls tend to be victims more often than boys. However, it should be noted in the results that cyber bullying affects all races, not just Caucasians.
