The Myth of Complete AI-Fairness

by   Virginia Dignum, et al.

The idea of fairness and justice has long and deep roots in Western civilization, and is strongly linked to ethics. It is therefore not strange that it is core to the current discussion about the ethics of development and use of AI systems. In this short paper, I wish to further motivate my position in this matter: “I will never be completely fair. Nothing ever is. The point is not complete fairness, but the need to establish metrics and thresholds for fairness that ensure trust in AI systems".
