- DeepMind is Using This Old Technique to Evaluate Fairness in Machine Learning Models - Oct 28, 2019.
Visualizing the datasets is an essential component to identify potential sources of bias and unfairness. DeepMind relied on a method called Causal Bayesian networks (CBNs) to represent and estimate unfairness in a dataset.
