Testing AI Image Bias

I was both enlightened and horrified when I ran across this video the other day about how Barbies look from different countries. It’s an analysis of generated AI imagery to see if it perpetuates stereotypes.

Spoiler alert: The researchers decided it does.

But I like to test things myself, so I chose six AI image generation tools and gave them the same simple prompts.

Second spoiler: Yep… lots of stereotypes here.

Take a look at the embedded document below, or take a closer look here. The original Barbie video is below.
