Datta quoted on machine bias

CyLab/ECE’s Anupam Datta was quoted in Science News on machine bias. With increased dependence on machine-learning, algorithms also pick up biases along the way. But is it possible to get a completely unbiased algorithm? “We have to think about forms of unfairness that we may want to eliminate, rather than hoping for a system that is absolutely fair in every possible dimension,” says Datta.
