Approximating Unknown Mappings: An Experimental Evaluation

Rafael Martí, Francisco Montes, Abdellah El-Fallahi
2005 Journal of Heuristics  
Different methodologies have been introduced in recent years with the aim of approximating unknown functions.  ...  The experimentation with 15 functions previously reported shows that a feed-forward neural network with one hidden layer, trained with our procedure, can compete with the best-known approximating methods  ...  On the other hand, when we are trying to approximate an unknown mapping with an expression with a large number of independent terms, in particular a polynomial, we can find that many of them do not have  ...

Fair Representation: Guaranteeing Approximate Multiple Group Fairness for Unknown Tasks [article]

Xudong Shen, Yongkang Wong, Mohan Kankanhalli
2021 arXiv   pre-print
When an incompatibility exists between different fairness notions, fair and discriminative representation hits the sweet spot that approximately satisfies all notions.  ...  Against the backdrop of the fairness impossibility results, we explore approximate fairness.  ...  Thus, using an approximately fair and approximately discriminative representation degrades the fairness guarantees gracefully. Corollary 1.  ...
