Will Google Algorithm Be Fair One Day?

1 comment

A very interesting article (and lots of more great content linked to from it) on how search algorithm is unfair.

A lot of good points on how we don't even know what "fair algorithm" means.

I think Google's one-box answers are making the whole problem worse...

There are many facets to the algorithm fairness problem one that has not even been widely acknowledged as a problem, despite the Times article. The message has been echoed by machine learning researchers but mostly ignored by practitioners....


Fair Isn't the Goal

It is totally unlikely that the search engines will ever write "fair" algorithms because that is not the goal.
