Summary… * Machine-Made
#Google has removed the 'gorilla' tag from its new Photos app, after a user noticed it had filed a number of photos of him and his black friend in an automatically generated album named 'gorillas'.
After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to tweak the algorithm, #Google removed the tag from the app's database altogether.
The app uses image labelling technology to assign tags to objects in photos and arrange them into albums.
For example, April Taylor from iTech Post noted in May that pictures of her dogs had been mislabelled as horses by #Google Photos.
#Google allows users of its Photos app to remove results when images are labelled incorrectly.
