18.40 - 19.20. Azzurra Ragone (Google) - Fairness in ML

Nowadays, Machine learning (ML) is used to predict nearly everything: from predicting future criminals to automated resume screening. At the same time, public concern is raised about the lack of Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency (FAT*) in ML algorithms.

When we build, evaluate and deploy machine learning models, we should keep FAT* considerations in our mind.

In this talk we will focus on fairness, for instance how different demographics will affect the model’s predictions.

We will highlight different types of human biases that may manifest in training data and how it is possible to identify them and, evaluate and mitigate their effects.
