The Hunt for the Atlantic’s Most Infamous Slave Shipwreck

quote [ Nearly 200 years ago, the slave ship Guerrero sunk, killing forty-one Africans. The wreck vanished. Until now. A group of divers led by Ken Stewart, a Black man in his seventies, believe they found it in the Florida Keys. But in a state that banned critical race theory, telling this story is suddenly complicated. ]

Recycled plastic […] is no fix for pollution, Greenpeace warns

quote [ “[The] toxicity of plastic actually increases with recycling. Plastics have no place in a circular economy and it’s clear that the only real solution to ending plastic pollution is to massively reduce plastic production.” ]

Google’s Photo App Still Can’t Find Gorillas. And Neither Can Apple’s.

quote [ Although computer vision products and A.I. chatbots like ChatGPT are different, both depend on underlying reams of data that train the software, and both can misfire because of flaws in the data or biases incorporated into their code. ]

Some baked-in bias. Full in extended.
