HP responds about its racist webcams

hp-webcamsIn case you need the backstory, watch this video that shows how HP’s new webcams discriminate against those with dark skin. Interesting, eh? HP no doubt got a bunch of emails over the last couple days and issued a response that basically says it was caused by the algorithm not properly measuring the light between the eyes and upper cheek. HP’s solution: “try to increase the light to the face while decreasing the amount of light in the background.”
