We showed how disentangled representations might be used for auditing. This is useful for finding proxy features and searching for potential introduction of bias in correlated features. Our solution allowed for the explicit computation of feature influence on either individual or aggregate-level outcomes.
This project proposed a way we might explain why active learning queries are being suggested to a domain expert. We built this to help batch active learning queries in a way that let chemists design natural experiments. We also explored some auditing and fairness applications of the proposed framework.
At Haverford College, I worked on the Dark Reaction Project team. The goal of this project was to take thousands of unused, "failed" reactions and leverage them into a machine learning model. This was successful and the system helped expose human biases in the exploratory synthesis pipeline.
