The use of machine learning systems has great potential to better predict probabilities of default for credit underwriting. Despite this advantage, herewith there exists the substantial risk of discrimination. Moreover, machine learning models with the highest prediction-accuracy are often the least explicable (i.e. explainable). Nonetheless,...

Ethical considerations in transportation planning literature have gotten more and more attention in the previous decades. One of those considerations is about how equitable (“fair”) the good of transportation is distributed. While there have been theoretical suggestions to incorporate equity into transportation planning methods, the proposed...
