FairNN- Conjoint Learning of Fair Representations for Fair Decisions

5 Apr 2020Tongxin HuVasileios IosifidisWentong LiaoHang ZhangMichael YingYangEirini NtoutsiBodo Rosenhahn

In this paper, we propose FairNN a neural network that performs joint feature representation and classification for fairness-aware learning. Our approach optimizes a multi-objective loss function in which (a) learns a fair representation by suppressing protected attributes (b) maintains the information content by minimizing a reconstruction loss and (c) allows for solving a classification task in a fair manner by minimizing the classification error and respecting the equalized odds-based fairness regularized...
