Distinguished Research Seminar in Data Science: Jon Kleinberg

Goergen Institute for Data Science welcomes distinguished lecturer Jon Kleinberg.

Title: Inherent Trade-Offs in Algorithmic Fairness 

Abstract:  Recent discussion in the public sphere about classification by algorithms has involved tension between competing notions of what it means for such a classification to be fair to different groups. We consider several of the key fairness conditions that lie at the heart of these debates, and discuss recent research establishing inherent trade-offs between these conditions. We also consider a variety of methods for promoting fairness and related notions for classification and selection problems that involve sets rather than just individuals. 

This talk is based on joint work with Sendhil Mullainathan, Manish Raghavan, and Maithra Raghu. 

Bio: Jon Kleinberg is the Tisch University Professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Information Science at Cornell University.
