Oasis Labs and Meta to Assess Fairness for AI Models Using Cutting-Edge Privacy Technologies

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]

A first-of-its-kind initiative enabling inclusiveness and fairness

Oasis Labs announced the partnership with Meta, alongside the launch of a platform to assess fairness in Meta’s products, while protecting people’s privacy. As Meta’s technology partner, Oasis Labs built the platform that uses Secure Multi-Party Computation (SMPC) to safeguard information as Meta asks users on Instagram to take a survey in which they can voluntarily share their race or ethnicity.

The project aims to advance fairness measurement in AI models, which is intended to positively impact the lives of individuals across the globe and benefit society as a whole. This looks to be a first-of-its-kind platform which will play a part in an initiative that is a step towards identifying whether an AI model is fair, as well as allowing for appropriate mitigation.

How the platform will assess fairness in AI models

Meta’s Responsible AI, Instagram Equity, and Civil Rights teams are introducing an off-platform survey to people who use Instagram. Users will be asked to share their race and/or ethnicity on a voluntary basis.

The data, collected by a third-party survey provider, will be secret-shared with third-party facilitators in a way such that the user’s survey responses cannot be learned by either the facilitators or Meta. The measurement is then computed by the facilitators using encrypted prediction data from AI models, that are cryptographically shared by Meta, with the combined, de-identified results from each facilitator reconstituted into aggregate fairness measurement results by Meta. The cryptographic techniques used by the platform enable Meta to measure for bias and fairness while providing individuals that contribute sensitive demographic measurement data high levels of privacy protection.
