Sam Levin in San Francisco, held a beauty contest and the judge was an Ai. Apparently the robots did not like people with dark skin. Out of 44 winners, nearly all were white, a handful were Asian, and only one had dark skin. Although the group did not build the algorithm to treat light skin as a sign of beauty, the input data effectively led the robot judges to reach that conclusion. But the reality, one the the programmers added, is that robots may not be the best judges of physical appearance: “I was more surprised about how the algorithm chose the most beautiful people. Out of a very large number, they chose people who I may not have selected myself.”

AI is only as smart as the input it receives as training. It can learn, but it always learns from what you feed into it.
If you feed it nature and trees, it will love nature and trees, if you feed the most popular beauty contest winners from the past, it will come out with white people. It's not rocket science. Even if color is not a factor, some face traces are more visible depending on the skin color too.0

It's the programming.
A robot doesn't just wake up and say "hey! I am attracted to lightskin!"
