🤳📽️ Does #TikTokmademebuyit ring a bell?

An event, whose name we won’t mention, has accelerated online shopping. TikTok saw the opportunity and has integrated online shopping into their platform. Furthermore, a survey claims that from 2019 to 2020 the number of US social e-commerce shoppers grew 25% to 80m, a number which is forecast to grow to more than 100m by 2023. As you can imagine, many companies would want to hop on the bandwagon, and TikTok is no exception.

The companies are responding to concerns, backed by an ample body of research, that A.I. programs can inadvertently produce biased results. Click the New York Times to find out more.
