Thesis Defense: Measuring the Impact of Algorithms in Online Marketplaces

Speaker: Le Chen, PhD Candidate, College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University

Unfortunately, we currently lack measurement tools or methodologies to audit the behavior of these algorithms. As a result, we are unable to measure the impact of these algorithms on people. The goal of Le Chen's work is to develop methodologies and build measurement tools to audit and understand the impact of black-box algorithms in online marketplaces. Motivated by these findings, he will propose two alternative ranking methods that encode different definitions of fairness, and examine the inherent tradeoffs posed by trying to achieve fairness in hiring markets.
