Modern software contributes to important societal decisions, and yet we know very little about its fairness properties. Can software discriminate? Evidence of software discrimination has been found in systems that recommend criminal sentences, grant access to loans and other financial products, transcribe YouTube videos, translate text, and perform facial recognition. Nonetheless, even defining what it means for software to discriminate is a complex task. I will present recent research that defines software fairness and discrimination; develops a testing-based, causality-capturing process for measuring if and how much software discriminates; and provides provable guarantees on software fairness. I will also describe open problems in software fairness and how recent advances in machine learning and natural language modeling can help address them. Overall, I will argue that enabling and ensuring software fairness requires solving research challenges across computer science, including in machine learning, software and systems process, human-computer interaction, and theoretical computer science. The main contributions discussed in this talk can be found in http://doi.org/10.1126/science.aag3311 and https://doi.org/10.1145/3106237.3106277/.

Bio: Yuriy Brun is an associate professor with the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. His research interests include software engineering, particularly of software that self-adapts, learns, or involves artificial intelligence, focusing on designing techniques to ensure software does not exhibit bias, discrimination, and other undesirable behavior. He received his PhD from the University of Southern California in 2008 and was a Computing Innovation postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington until 2012. Prof. Brun is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award in 2015, the IEEE TCSC Young Achiever in Scalable Computing Award in 2013, a SEAMS 2020 Most Influential Paper Award, two ACM SIGSOFT and one ACM SIGPLAN Distinguished Paper Awards (ESEC/FSE 2011, ESEC/FSE 2017, and OOPSLA 2019), and a Best Paper Award (ICSA 2017). His research is highly interdisciplinary and his contributions have been recently published in ICSE, ESEC/FSE, TSE, TOSEM, OOPSLA, NeurIPS, SOUPS, CACM, and Science.
