ImpactAlpha, Feb. 2 – Pressure has been building on Meta, Google, Microsoft and OpenAI to address bias in large language models and get right the stories of Black history and culture. “Black and Brown people should own their stories,” Latimer.ai’s John Pasmore told Plugged In host Sherrell Dorsey.
Latimer recently released its own beta ‘BlackGPT,’ loaded with historical and cultural Black facts, including from Amsterdam News, the nation’s oldest Black newspaper. If the tech giants eventually get the story right, great, says Pasmore, “I think we should build it ourselves. They can take our API, and always be correct.”
