FR-Train: A Mutual Information-Based Approach to Fair and Robust Training [article]

Yuji Roh, Kangwook Lee, Steven Euijong Whang, Changho Suh
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We provide a mutual information-based interpretation of an existing adversarial training-based fairness-only method, and apply this idea to architect an additional discriminator that can identify poisoned  ...  To address this problem, we propose FR-Train, which holistically performs fair and robust model training.  ...  Robustness The robustness discriminator ensures robust training by using mutual information to distinguish examples and predictions from a clean validation set.  ...

A Sociotechnical View of Algorithmic Fairness [article]

Mateusz Dolata and Stefan Feuerriegel and Gerhard Schwabe
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We call for and undertake a holistic approach to AF. A sociotechnical perspective on algorithmic fairness can yield holistic solutions to systemic biases and discrimination.  ...  However, based on a state-of-the-art literature review, we argue that fairness is an inherently social concept and that technologies for algorithmic fairness should therefore be approached through a sociotechnical  ...  ., Suh, C.

Face Image Quality Assessment: A Literature Survey

Torsten Schlett, Christian Rathgeb, Olaf Henniger, Javier Galbally, Julian Fierrez, Christoph Busch
2022 ACM Computing Surveys  
A trend towards deep learning based methods is observed, including notable conceptual differences among the recent approaches, such as the integration of quality assessment into face recognition models  ...  Open issues and challenges are pointed out, i.a. highlighting the importance of comparability for algorithm evaluations, and the challenge for future work to create deep learning approaches that are interpretable  ...  MSM (Mutual Subspace Method) based on either LBP or HOG features.  ...

Meta Balanced Network for Fair Face Recognition

Mei Wang, Yaobin Zhang, Weihong Deng
2021 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence  
Further, we provide two skin-tone aware training datasets, called BUPT-Globalface dataset and BUPT-Balancedface dataset, to remove bias in training data.  ...  To determine the margins, our method optimizes a meta skewness loss on a clean and unbiased meta set and utilizes backward-on-backward automatic differentiation to perform a second order gradient descent  ...  in the similar way as other FR training datasets, e.g., VGGface2 [19] and Megaface [65] .  ...

Fairness-Aware PAC Learning from Corrupted Data [article]

Nikola Konstantinov, Christoph H. Lampert
2021 arXiv   pre-print
While many approaches have been developed for training fair models from data, little is known about the robustness of these methods to data corruption.  ...  Addressing fairness concerns about machine learning models is a crucial step towards their long-term adoption in real-world automated systems.  ...  Yuji Roh, Kangwook Lee, Steven Euijong Whang, and Changho Suh.

Where the devil dances: A constructivist grounded theory of resilience in volunteer firefighters

Leigh Blaney, Vancouver Island University-Royal Roads University, Vancouver Island University-Royal Roads University
2017
The purpose of this programme of study was to construct a theory of resilience in volunteer firefighters, a population that, despite facing intermittent and at times intense work-related stressors, is  ...  The CGT asserts that within a volunteer FRS there are a number of concepts that inter-relate to construct resilience: relationships, personal resources, meaning-making, leadership, culture, and knowledge  ...  Historically, stress has been conceived of as a medical or pathological response; however, recognizing firefighters experience normal and expected responses to stress at both the micro and  ...
