AI models that generate predictions have ethical implications when deployed in the real world. This has led to efforts to combat algorithmic bias and fairness by analyzing the confusion matrix to understand the implications of model misclassification. This presentation showcases a free, publicly available app that helps data scientists assess algorithmic bias. The app is powered by a probabilistic Bayesian model that supports the interpretation of the confusion matrix. The presentation focuses on the use case of predicting rare adverse events in the hospital setting.
