Folk provides easy access to datasets that can be used to benchmark machine learning algorithms. The goal of Folk is to facilitate and encourage work on fair machine learning among R users.
The Folk package has three key features:
Folk is inspired by the folktables Python package. For more information on folktables see Ding, Hardt, Miller, and Schmidt (2022), Retiring Adult: New Datasets for Fair Machine Learning. The pre-defined prediction tasks for the American Community Survey data are implementations of the tasks introduced in this paper.
