The Unfairness of Fair Machine Learning: Levelling down and strict egalitarianism by default

no code implementations5 Feb 2023 Brent Mittelstadt, Sandra Wachter, Chris Russell

Many current fairness measures suffer from both fairness and performance degradation, or "levelling down," where fairness is achieved by making every group worse off, or by bringing better performing groups down to the level of the worst off.

1 code implementation12 May 2020 Sandra Wachter, Brent Mittelstadt, Chris Russell

Through this proposal for procedural regularity in the identification and assessment of automated discrimination, we clarify how to build considerations of fairness into automated systems as far as possible while still respecting and enabling the contextual approach to judicial interpretation practiced under EU non-discrimination law.


Adequate and fair explanations

This partiality makes it possible to hide explicit biases present in the algorithm that may be injurious or unfair. We investigate how easy it is to uncover these biases in providing complete and fair explanations by exploiting the structure of the set of counterfactuals providing a complete local explanation.
