Data mining is an important technology for extracting useful patterns from large amount of data. Two major prevalent issues in data mining are privacy violation and discrimination. Discrimination arises when people are given unfair treatment on the basis of their sensitive features like gender, race, religion etc. Types of discrimination are direct and indirect discrimination.
