In today’s world, data is being used to train autonomous decision-making agents in banking, insurance, hiring and many more industries. Such data is subject to all sorts of unsafe patterns, notably discriminative behaviours. Deployed agents themselves perpetrate the biases present in the data. At Fairgen, our approach is to allow companies to simulate a world where discrimination is removed, to gather data from this cleaner world and train agents this data, in order to lead to safer, fairer and more accurate behaviors in the real world.
