Google AI tool will no longer use gendered labels like ‘woman’ or ‘man’ in photos of people

Google’s AI tool for developers won’t add gender labels to images anymore, saying a person’s gender can’t be determined just by appearance. The company emailed developers about the change to its Cloud Vision API tool, which developers use to analyze images and identify faces, landmarks, explicit content, and other recognizable features.
