The Guardian: Apple made Siri deflect questions on feminism, leaked papers reveal

The Guardian: Apple made Siri deflect questions on feminism, leaked papers reveal. “An internal project to rewrite how Apple’s Siri voice assistant handles ‘sensitive topics’ such as feminism and the #MeToo movement advised developers to respond in one of three ways: ‘don’t engage’, ‘deflect’ and finally ‘inform’. The project saw Siri’s responses explicitly rewritten to ensure that the service would say it was in favour of ‘equality’, but never say the word feminism – even when asked direct questions about the topic.”
