Representativity Fairness in Clustering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, we develop a novel notion of fairness in clustering, called representativity fairness. Representativity fairness is motivated by the need to alleviate disparity across objects' proximity to their assigned cluster representatives, to aid fairer decision making.
We develop a new clustering formulation, RFKM, that targets to optimize for representativity fairness along with clustering quality.
