Aequitas – Center for Data Science and Public Policy
Machine Learning, AI and Data Science based predictive tools are being increasingly used in problems that can have a drastic impact on people’s lives in policy areas such as criminal justice, education, public health, workforce development and social services. Recent work has raised concerns on the risk of unintended bias in these models, affecting individuals from certain groups unfairly. While a lot of bias metrics and fairness definitions have been proposed, there is no consensus on which definitions and metrics should be used in practice to evaluate and audit these systems. Further, there has been very little empirical work done on using and evaluating these measures on real-world problems, especially in public policy.

Aequitas, an open source bias audit toolkit developed by the Center for Data Science and Public Policy at University of Chicago, can be used to audit the predictions of machine learning based risk assessment tools to understand different types of biases, and make informed decisions about developing and deploying such systems.

Down with Pipeline debt / Introducing Great Expectations
Pipeline debt is a species of technical debt that infests backend data systems. It drags down productivity and puts analytic integrity at risk. The best way to beat pipeline debt is a new twist on automated testing: pipeline tests, which are applied to data (instead of code) and at batch time (instead of compile or deploy time).

We’re releasing Great Expectations, an open-source tool that make it easy to test data pipelines. Come take it for a spin!

The Muddle Programming Language
The Muddlers website works to preserve this particular part of the Lisp family tree by recording the history and information about the language while giving credit where due, develop an interpreter to run on modern systems that maintains the spirit of the initial implementation, and serve as a resource to help fellow muddlers.

The Muddle interpreter and documentation are free software, licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License, so that everyone will always have the right to study, share, and change them.

A Rant About Git
"The end result here is that the technical deficiencies in git create a barrier to non-experts which has led us to grant an american corporation exclusive control of vast swathes of the FOSS commons. This will not end well."
