Theory for Society: Fairness in Classification

Presented by: 
Cynthia Dwork Microsoft Research, Microsoft Research
Date: 
Wednesday 7th December 2016 - 15:30 to 16:15
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
The uses of data and algorithms are publicly under debate on an unprecedented scale. Listening carefully to the concerns of rights advocates, researchers, and other data consumers and collectors suggests many possible current and future problems in which theoretical computer science can play a positive role.  The talk will discuss the nascent mathematically rigorous study of fairness in classification and scoring.
