Description
This workshop will look at the idea of fairness and neutrality in algorithms and decision-making. How it relates to the idea of randomization and how randomization can be employed in the pursuit of neutrality and fairness. The goal is both to bring together state-of-the-art research and explore the implications and limitations of the deployment in the real world.
