On the Adversarial Robustness of Causal Algorithmic Recourse [article]

Ricardo Dominguez-Olmedo, Amir-Hossein Karimi, Bernhard Schölkopf
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In order to shift part of the burden of robustness from the decision-subject to the decision-maker, we propose a model regularizer that encourages the additional cost of seeking robust recourse to be low  ...  Recourse recommendations should ideally be robust to reasonably small uncertainty in the features of the individual seeking recourse.  ...  On the fairness of causal algorithmic recourse.

Algorithmic Recourse in Partially and Fully Confounded Settings Through Bounding Counterfactual Effects [article]

Julius von Kügelgen, Nikita Agarwal, Jakob Zeitler, Afsaneh Mastouri, Bernhard Schölkopf
2021 arXiv   pre-print
If the lower bound is above a certain threshold, i.e., on the other side of the decision boundary, recourse is guaranteed in expectation.  ...  The proposed approach only requires specification of the causal graph and confounding structure and bounds the expected counterfactual effect of recourse actions.  ...  This work was supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF): Tübingen AI Center, FKZ: 01IS18039B; and by the Machine Learning Cluster of Excellence, EXC number 2064/1 -Project  ...

A Causal Perspective on Meaningful and Robust Algorithmic Recourse [article]

Gunnar König, Timo Freiesleben, Moritz Grosse-Wentrup
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Additionally, we introduce a relaxation of MAR called effective algorithmic recourse (EAR), which, under certain assumptions, yields meaningful recourse by only allowing interventions on causes of the  ...  Extending the work of Karimi et al. (2021), we propose meaningful algorithmic recourse (MAR) that only recommends actions that improve both prediction and target.  ...  We take a causal perspective on the issue at hand and argue that robustness and meaningfulness are related problems ICML (International Conference on Machine Learning) Workshop on Algorithmic Recourse.  ...

Algorithmic Recourse: from Counterfactual Explanations to Interventions [article]

Amir-Hossein Karimi, Bernhard Schölkopf, Isabel Valera
2020 arXiv   pre-print

Multi-Agent Algorithmic Recourse [article]

Andrew O'Brien, Edward Kim
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Past work has largely focused on the effect algorithmic recourse has on a single agent.  ...  In this work, we show that when the assumption of a single agent environment is relaxed, current approaches to algorithmic recourse fail to guarantee certain ethically desirable properties.  ...  fair way.  ...

Counterfactual Explanations Can Be Manipulated [article]

Dylan Slack and Sophie Hilgard and Himabindu Lakkaraju and Sameer Singh
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We perform experiments on loan and violent crime prediction data sets where certain subgroups achieve up to 20x lower cost recourse under the perturbation.  ...  We describe how these models can unfairly provide low-cost recourse for specific subgroups in the data while appearing fair to auditors.  ...  The views expressed are those of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of the funding agencies.  ...

Algorithmic recourse under imperfect causal knowledge: a probabilistic approach [article]

Amir-Hossein Karimi, Julius von Kügelgen, Bernhard Schölkopf, Isabel Valera
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Recent work has discussed the limitations of counterfactual explanations to recommend actions for algorithmic recourse, and argued for the need of taking causal relationships between features into consideration  ...  The second removes any assumptions on the structural equations by instead computing the average effect of recourse actions on individuals similar to the person who seeks recourse, leading to a novel subpopulation-based  ...  Moreover, a special thanks to Adrià Garriga-Alonso for insightful input on some of the GP-derivations and to Adrián Javaloy Bornás for invaluable help with the CVAE-training.  ...

Amortized Generation of Sequential Algorithmic Recourses for Black-box Models [article]

Sahil Verma, Keegan Hines, John P. Dickerson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Algorithmic Recourses (ARs) provide "what if" feedback of the form "if an input datapoint were x' instead of x, then an ML-based system's output would be y' instead of y."  ...  We evaluate our approach using three real-world datasets and show successful generation of sequential ARs that respect other recourse desiderata.  ...  Results Table 3 shows the performance of FASTAR and all the baselines on the recourse desiderata.  ...
