As concerns emerge over how AI tools may reinforce inequalities, a landmark act may offer some corrective measures, reports Marisa Woutersen.

The increased use of artificial intelligence (AI) could be reinforcing many biases, according to a leading Black-led, nonprofit US organisation Capital B.

In a report published in Vox magazine last month, the organisation shared concerns that such revolutionary technology could exacerbate existing discrimination.

The report comes after EU lawmakers backed the introduction of more stringent AI rules on June 14.
