CoffeeMeetsBagel’s Somewhat Racist Algorithm


Coffeemeetsbagel study ethnicityBUZZFEED – Jan 14 – Even when users say “no preference” for ethnicity, CoffeeMeetsBagel dating app tends to show them people of their own race. CoffeeMeetsBagel commented: “If you are a member of a minority group, ‘no preference’ may end up meaning you’ll be matched with people from your own race.” Yet, it seems like a relatively common experience, even if users aren’t from a minority group. White and Asian women who had no preference were shown mostly Asian men; Latino men were shown only Latina women. Coffee Meets Bagel argues that they actually are hoping for racial matches, even if they don’t know it.
