NYC creates coalition to end bias and 'race norming' in medical algorithms

New York City announced a recent effort to end race adjustments in clinical algorithms used by the city's hospitals. Industry Associate Professor and Director of Science and Technology Studies Danya Glabau said "algorithms" in the context of medicine have a much longer history than the computerized systems that the council seeks to reform. “They don't really solve the problem of racism on their own, because the history of medicine is racist," says Glabau.
