Researchers at Google have developed a set of components for evaluating algorithmic fairness in simulated social environments.

ML-fairness-gym, published as open source on GitHub, can be used to study the long-term effects of automated systems by simulating decision-making using OpenAI’s Gym framework.

Artificial intelligence (AI)-controlled programs interact with digital environments, choosing actions that affect the environment’s state. Then, the environment reveals an observation that the agent uses to inform its next moves so the environment models the system and dynamics of a problem and the observations serve as data.

Actions informed by the output of AI systems can have effects that might influence their future input.
