“Half of the female STEM faculty in the US were hired over more qualified men,” Pedro Domingos, a retired computer science and engineering professor who has garnered more than 55,000 citations to his published works, according to Google Scholar, posted to Twitter.
In response, the University of Washington’s Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering admitted that they “cannot limit what emeritus faculty members say via private accounts” before admonishing Domingos’ claim as “meritless, sexist, inflammatory, [and] attention-seeking.”
The University of Washington’s repudiation follows similar outcries against Domingos from alumni, academics, Google executives, the editor-in-chief of Science Magazine Holden Thorpe and the creator of the 1619 Project, Nikole Hannah-Jones.
