Fair Classification via Unconstrained Optimization

21 May 2020 Ibrahim Alabdulmohsin

Achieving the Bayes optimal binary classification rule subject to group fairness constraints is known to be reducible, in some cases, to learning a group-wise thresholding rule over the Bayes regressor. In this paper, we extend this result by proving that, in a broader setting, the Bayes optimal fair learning rule remains a group-wise thresholding rule over the Bayes regressor but with a (possible) randomization at the thresholds...
