The Toronto Declaration on Discrimination in Machine Learning

The Toronto Declaration on Discrimination in Machine Learning is a step toward developing detailed guidelines for the promotion of equality and protection of the right to nondiscrimination in machine learning. The Declaration will be crafted in the days leading up to RightsCon to address the substantial risks of discriminatory profiling in decision making driven by machine learning. Applied to big data sets, machine learning enables detailed discrimination caused by the underlying data and the design and implementation of systems. The lack of diversity among those designing and implementing systems contributes to these risks. The Declaration will address necessary protections for companies and governments exploring and implementing the future of machine learning.

Join the drafters of the Declaration for a roundtable to discuss the text, how it will be used, and next steps. The Toronto Declaration will form the basis for future work identifying and remediating the threats of discrimination in machine learning.
