MIT has taken offline a massive and highly-cited dataset that trained Artificial Intelligence systems to use racist and misogynistic terms to describe people. The database, known as '80 Million Tiny Images,' is a massive collection of photos with descriptive labels used to teach machine-learning models to identify images. It was created in 2008 to help produce advanced object-detection techniques.
