Philadelphia Sexual Harassment Lawyers Discuss Bots and Sexual Harassment

March 14th, 2017

A recent study suggests that tech giants like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google may have a long way to go when it comes to programming their bots against sexual stereotypes and harassment. Although women have come a long way in creating an equal environment at work and beyond, there is still much progress to be made.

Many people use Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google Home on a daily basis, and the service they provide can make life easier and broaden our horizons. But some people make sexually suggestive comments or ask abusive questions when using these services, sometimes in a misguided attempt at humor, and the responses are far from adequate. Some believe the responses may even reinforce sexual stereotypes and promote an atmosphere of abuse.

For example, the worst responses to sexual suggestions may come from Siri, whose somewhat subservient-toned answers have included “I’d blush if I could,” and “Oooh!” But seemingly benign responses from other bots, including simply “nope” or “thanks for the feedback,” may be missed chances to make a statement to would-be offenders that sexual harassment is no joke.
