Title: Responsible AI Mitigations and Tracker: New open-source tools for guiding mitigations in Responsible AI

Abstract: Responsible AI Toolbox is an open-source effort at Microsoft for accelerating and operationalizing Responsible AI via a set of interoperable tools, libraries, and customizable dashboards. Recently, we released two new tools as part of the toolbox:

Both tools contribute to supporting a systematic and targeted process of model improvement by identifying, diagnosing, mitigating, and comparing failure modes. During the presentation, we will delve into the new tooling additions and will illustrate their functionalities through a hands-on demonstration. In particular, we will show how insights extracted via the Responsible AI Dashboard through the identification and diagnosis stage can then be used to ideate and implement different mitigation techniques via the Responsible AI Mitigations library. Finally, we will also demonstrate how different mitigation techniques can be compared and validated through Responsible AI Tracker directly on Jupyter Lab.
