What if a Facebook bot could rid you of your subconscious prejudices? MEC Global‘s got you cover, having created a Facebook bot that sends messages to participants to counter any unconscious biases they may have.
Those who participate will get sent messages every day by the bot, including tips on how handle the day, such as questioning assumptions they immediately think after meeting someone.
