Can AI Promote Meritocracy?
{{unknown}}
As we consider ways in which applications carry unintended social consequences, it is useful to think about deliberate attempts to have positive social impact. This makes the case of TARA as reported by BBC News a useful example.  The TARA (Talent Acquisition and Recruiting Automation) algorithm analyzes and ranks programmers' code and removes biographical information in forming assessments about their likely contribution to a project.  What do you think of such a deliberate effort to promote this version of meritocracy? How would you judge the algorithm and its impact?
