     A potential nightmare example emerged last week with an Antigonish, Nova Scotia house that saw its assessed value drop to $1 from $365,000 after the owners found Mi’kmaq artifacts on the property and reported them. If the goal was to reduce property taxes, it was shrewd. Real estate laws in Canada can be murky on this stuff, as sellers are only required to disclose material defects to the property, such as a crack in the foundation. And while nobody expects to find a burial site when they start digging out the basement, there are value killers you can watch out for.

  • "Holy F**K": When Facial Recognition Algorithms Go Wrong

    Google’s new Photos service, which uses machine learning to automatically tag photos, made a huge miscalculation on Monday when it automatically tagged two African-Americans as "gorillas." Developers at Google immediately apologized for the gaffe and then worked to fix the app’s database. The user in question, computer programmer Jacky Alciné , reported the problem via Twitter when he found that Google Photos had created an album labeled "gorillas" that exclusively featured photos of him and his African-American friend. Facial recognition technology, which involves training computer programs to recognize objects based on databases of images, has caused issues for other services before.
