Introducing a Family of Synthetic Datasets for Research on Bias in Machine Learning. (arXiv:2107.08928v1 [cs.LG])

A significant impediment to progress in research on bias in machine learning
(ML) is the availability of relevant datasets. This situation is unlikely to
change much given the sensitivity of such data. For this reason, there is a
role for synthetic data in this research. In this short paper, we present one
such family of synthetic data sets. We provide an overview of the data,
describe how the level of bias can be varied, and present a simple example of
an experiment on the data.
