Ask a layman about artificial intelligence and they might point to sci-fi villains such as HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey or the Terminator. But the co-founders of the AI Now Institute, Meredith Whittaker and Kate Crawford, want to change the conversation.

Rather than killer robots, you should be concerned about what happens to your résumé when it hits a program like the one Amazon tried to build.
