Fairness in health AI: ensuring equity in healthcare cost predictions.


With the widespread use of AI systems in our everyday lives, it is important to factor fairness while designing these systems. In this work, we discuss fairness and bias related to healthcare AI: it’s impact, source, and actionable methods for evaluating and mitigating it. We demonstrate a hands-on fairness analysis of an algorithm used to predict healthcare cost, revealing fairness in model predictions across demographic groups.
