Meeting info#


You’re welcome to join us for our next Data Ethics Club meeting on 5th October, 1pm UK time. You don’t need to register, just pop in. This time we’re going to watch/read The Failures of Algorithmic Fairness by Paul Lee, which is a blog about the complications of trying to achieve fairness in algorithmic systems.

Thank you to Paul Lee who wrote this blog post!

Discussion points#

There will be time to talk about whatever we like, relating to the paper, but here are some specific questions to think about while you’re reading.

  • What do you think we lose or gain from trying to make our lives more and more efficient?

  • What different ways could we measure ‘fairness’?

  • Is there an acceptable level of fairness we could require before releasing new technologies? How would this work in practice?
