Get Honest Reviews Through Anonymity

Get Honest Reviews Through Anonymity

Reviews of restaurants and other establishments have been growing with programs like Yelp, Urban Spoon and others, but the honesty of these reviews are often questionable. The vast majority of people provide 4-5 star reviews and without full anonymity, it’s difficult to be truly honest. The Good vs. Bad smart phone application uses a proprietary algorithm for their customer index in order to provide the most relevant and honest information about certain locales.

        Getting relevant feedback through this app will depend highly on your location, but if you find yourself surrounded by many users, the honest reviews might be extremely helpful in your mealtime decision-making process. Best of all, writing reviews can earn you virtual currency that can be used to purchase goods.

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

        Does technology have all the answers?

        This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

        Creating technological solutions transparently

        This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

        Technology as the connecting tool

        Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

        “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
