Mismatching concerns and definitions in current trends in Machine Learning
21 February 2022, Monday
17:00 (CET/time of Nancy/Tübingen)
Please register by clicking here (for this and for the future meetings of the seminar)
Both the lecture and the discussion will be in English.
In this talk we will revisit current approaches to fairness and privacy in machine learning, and take a critical look at the concerns they address. We will show that concerns are modeled in a narrow way, and therefore the proposed solutions fall short to provide the protections that are promised in the literature. We will look at three examples and discuss the implications of the mismatch on how these systems may affect society if deployed.
