Tina Eliassi-Rad: Just Machine Learning

Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering Data Science Invited Talk Series

Friday, Apr 3rd 2020
Luddy Hall, Rm. 1106

Not being properly represented in the training data comes at a cost to the under-sampled majority when machine learning algorithms are used to aid human decision-makers. Tina Eliassi-Rad will discuss our null model for fairness and demonstrate how to use deviations from this null model to measure favoritism and prejudice in the data. 

This talk is part of the Data Science Invited Talk Series. You can find additional information here: https://bit.ly/37mehib
