In this talk, I will discuss fairness in resource allocation, which models everyday tasks such as estate division. I will introduce various formal definitions of fairness that have been studied in the literature, and talk about recent projects in which we design algorithms which provide a combination of such guarantees. The role of user preferences, user groups, and randomization will be explored. The talk will focus on how much we can push the limits of fairness in allocating resources and how this helps people in the real world, and point to future work in this direction.
