Cathy O'Neil's Fox Co. thought experiment suggests that the only way to define success is in terms of what counted as success prior to the AI intervention. If so, then AI instruments would be useless to introduce new standards/criteria/policy objectives etc. But isn't it possible for an engineer who (in her hypothetical) is serious about reversing discrimination could actually write the software so that it has to include a certain # of female applicants, and then establish criteria which can be used to establish the promise of future "success?" I think O'Neil's book and work are great, but in a case like this I'd be surprised if engineers would necessarily be stuck with a "past is prologue" scenario.
