EGENIS seminar: "Algorithmic fairness and decision thresholds", Kate Vredenburgh (LSE)

Procedurally fair decision-making in the fair machine learning literature is primarily understood in terms of a requirement of equal treatment, or treating like cases alike. In the fair machine learning literature, equal treatment is understood as requiring at least the following two conditions: (1) the same threshold is applied regardless of one’s social identity or arbitrary characteristics, and (2) some form of parity in error rates, regardless of one’s social identity or arbitrary characteristics. Criticisms of the fair machine learning literature mainly focus on (2) (e.g., Eva 2022). In this talk, I focus on (1), or the application of the same threshold. I argue that thresholds violate a plausible further notion of fairness, that of respecting claims in proportion to their strength (Broome 1991). This account of fairness pushes us towards the greater use of (weighted) lotteries for algorithmic decision-making.. Full details

International Workshop - Values at sea: Science Studies meets Marine Biology

Across many disciplines, attention is increasingly focused on the sea. This is no surprise: it is a site of immense value, supporting and shaping the global biosphere, and is under considerable threat. Whilst ocean ecosystems are pushed to the brink, scholars now often talk of the blue humanities and oceanic turns, of blue economics and accelerations, and of ocean decades. These trends necessitate a similar refocusing towards the sea in the history, philosophy, and social studies of science, fields that are well placed to help understand and contextualise some of the changes occurring to marine systems. To facilitate the emergence of social studies of marine life, as well as the integration of such scholarship with biological and ecological research, this two-day seminar will bring together people engaged in and focused on interactions between scientists and the sea..
