Abstract

[Introduction] As automated decision procedures become an increasing part of our lives, the question of how to ensure that they are fair is more relevant than ever. The freedoms, careers, and financial statuses of everyone whose lives depend on these decisions often hinge on whether the algorithms behind them are fair or not, so it is critical that algorithmic fairness is understood in a precise and rigorous manner.
