The Verge: Google is using a new way to measure skin tones to make search results more inclusive

The Verge: Google is using a new way to measure skin tones to make search results more inclusive. “The tech giant is working with Ellis Monk, an assistant professor of sociology at Harvard and the creator of the Monk Skin Tone Scale, or MST. The MST Scale is designed to replace outdated skin tone scales that are biased towards lighter skin. When these older scales are used by tech companies to categorize skin color, it can lead to products that perform worse for people with darker coloring, says Monk.”
