Machine Ethics on Discrimination and Fairness

Ethical issues in Artificial intelligence and machine learning has become a hot topic in the last couple of years. It is a very complicated and broad issue. This project focuses only on one dimension of it: fairness. It is known that human beings make discrimination in employee hiring situation and evaluation of bank loan applications on the basis of gender, ethnic origin, race, etc. Computer systems using machine learning (ML) methods are found to repeat the same kind of discrimination. This project starts with a survey on the state-of the art work on machine discrimination using the existing data sets, and develops metrics for measuring fairness of ML methods. 1-2 students
