How to Be Less Human

How to be Less Human examines the way computer vision algorithms interpret race, gender and class. It demonstrates how human actors and stereotypes are encoded in algorithms. It also highlights the bias against women and blacks in computer vision and reveals the relationship between humans and machine learning applications. This provocative new work is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of AI and machine learning. Its message is clear: human characteristics are what make us human.

Moreover, it’s important to understand that humans were designed to survive painful experiences and to dissociate from them. When we distance ourselves from those experiences, we cut ourselves off from other parts of the human experience. This process is effective in the short run, but costs us more in the long run. For this reason, it’s important to learn new ways of coping with difficult emotions. But first, it’s important to understand how these traits can negatively affect your mental health.

For example, people who remember their own dishonesty tend to attribute less human traits to themselves, while those who recall their own honesty tend to associate themselves with more human qualities. Self-dehumanization can lead to unethical behaviour, despite our best efforts to be ethical. During a study, Kouchaki and his colleagues divided participants into two groups: one wrote about their own feelings of disbelief and lack of human abilities. The other group, however, wrote about how they were able to identify with that type of pain.
