Britain’s forgotten slave owners
Profit and Loss

What has been largely forgotten is that abolition came at a price. The government of the day took the extraordinary step of compensating the slave owners for loss of their ‘property’, as Britain’s slave owners were paid £17bn in today’s money, whilst the slaves received nothing.

Britains forgotten slave owners
The price of freedom

Of the 46,000 names in the 1834 compensation records, 3,000 lived in Britain, yet they owned half of the slaves across the empire and pocketed half of the compensation money. These include members of the clergy and of the House of Lords. The records also show that at the point of abolition, more than 40 per cent of all the slave owners were women.

From the courts to the jobs market, AI is influencing decisions that have a big impact on people’s lives. Researchers now believe that not all people are treated equally by some algorithms. They’ve found potential bias – influenced by race, class and gender – can have an impact on the decisions that computers make. Some programmers, computer scientists and entrepreneurs hope to fight this bias, using the technology that created it in the first place.
