Lab: Mitigate Bias in Models

Lab: Mitigate Bias in Models

Use Case: HR Recruitment

About this Mission

On this mission, you will use DataRobot to learn how ethical issues can impact your machine learning projects. You will do this by building and refining an ML model to mitigate bias. You will identify variables with inherent gender bias and perform feature engineering to remove the features that introduce bias.

Mission format and duration: self-paced, hands-on, 1 hour

Upon completion of this mission, you will be able to: 

  • Build a binary classification model to predict the probability that an applicant will be hired
  • Isolate variables that predict bias and perform feature engineering to remove them from your model

Who should complete this mission?

  • Business Analysts
  • Citizen Data Scientists
  • Data Scientists

Before embarking on this mission, you should complete one of the following:
