The interplay between light and matter is especially complex for skin. Skin is an incredible organ. Numerous factors, both external and biological, influence how light interacts with skin and how the human eye perceives it. These factors include the amount of lipids in skin, thickness of skin, and of course the composition of skin (e.g. amount of melanin): all factors which can modulate the way light bounces off skin. Our colleagues have rightly paid much attention to topics like algorithmic bias in recent years, but there are also biases stemming from the underlying physics of light and color that influence computer vision pipelines downstream. We study computational imaging devices and algorithms to discover the intricacies of how they are affected by physical biases. If successful, we can take steps toward the design of fair imaging systems.
