Recently, there has been a lot of interest in ensuring algorithmic fairness in machine learning where the central question is how to prevent sensitive information (e.g. knowledge about the ethnic group of an individual) from adding "unfair" bias to a learning algorithm (Feldman et al. (2015), Zemel et al. (2013)). This has led to several debiasing algorithms on word embeddings (Qian et al. (2019) , Bolukbasi et al. (2016)), coreference resolution (Zhao et al. (2018a)), semantic role labeling (Zhao et al. (2017)), etc... (read more)
