From The Foundation for Best Practices in Machine Learning

Target Subjectivity


Document and assess whether the Target Feature(s) objectively represent Product Domain(s). If subjective, consider refining Product Definition(s), choosing a different Target Feature, or taking measures to promote the objectivity of Product Outcomes.


To (a) ensure that Product Outcomes are representative of subpopulations and applications, and are not misinterpreted; (b) ensure that Models are optimized only and precisely according to Product Definitions; and (c) highlight associated risks that might occur in the Product Lifecycle.
