Revisiting Popularity and Demographic Biases in Recommender Evaluation and Effectiveness [article]

Nicola Neophytou, Bhaskar Mitra, Catherine Stinson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In a recent study, Ekstrand et al. investigate how recommender performance varies according to popularity and demographics, and find statistically significant differences in recommendation utility between  ...  In addition, we find that total usage and the popularity of consumed content are strong predictors of recommender performance and also vary significantly across demographic groups.  ...  While typical methods of evaluating the effectiveness of search tools and recommender systems do not consider the disparate impact across demographic groups, several recent papers support the concern that  ...

KuaiRec: A Fully-observed Dataset for Recommender Systems [article]

Chongming Gao, Shijun Li, Wenqiang Lei, Biao Li, Peng Jiang, Jiawei Chen, Xiangnan He, Jiaxin Mao, Tat-Seng Chua
2022 arXiv   pre-print
However, most offline recommendation datasets are highly sparse and contain various biases, which hampers the evaluation of recommendation policies.  ...  This entails the significance of our fully-observed data in researching many directions in recommender systems, e.g., the unbiased recommendation, interactive/conversational recommendation, and evaluation  ...  Effects of Popularity Biases in Evaluation. The results of the popularity-oriented exposure have a similar phenomenon: only PopRec has unstable performance and inconsistent rankings.  ...

Users' Perception of Search Engine Biases and Satisfaction [article]

Bin Han, Chirag Shah, Daniel Saelid
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In our study, we take the perspective from end-users to analyze their perceptions of search engine biases and their satisfaction when the biases are regulated.  ...  In the study, we paired a real search page from search engine Bing with a synthesized page that has more diversities in the results (i.e. less biased).  ...  [2] designed two metrics to quantify such popularity bias and proposed a method to reduce the biased correlation between item relevance and item popularity.  ...

What do Bias Measures Measure? [article]

Sunipa Dev, Emily Sheng, Jieyu Zhao, Jiao Sun, Yu Hou, Mattie Sanseverino, Jiin Kim, Nanyun Peng, Kai-Wei Chang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
While many existing works propose bias evaluation methodologies for different tasks, there remains a need to cohesively understand what biases and normative harms each of these measures captures and how  ...  To address this gap, this work presents a comprehensive survey of existing bias measures in NLP as a function of the associated NLP tasks, metrics, datasets, and social biases and corresponding harms.  ...  Thus, we recommend treating documentation as a continuous process and revisiting the questions every so often.  ...
