Twitter announced a contest to incentivize the detection of algorithmic bias in its image cropping algorithm. According to the company, the bounty competition aims to "set a precedent" for itself and the industry as it relates to "proactive and collective identification of algorithmic harms." Participating teams will have their bias assessments judged on the use of quantitative and qualitative methods in their approach. Teams will vie for five money prizes, including $3,500 for first place. The deadline for submissions is Aug. 6.
