Title:On the Fairness of Disentangled Representations

The authors evaluate the potential benefits of disentangled representations with respect to fairness. The paper offers extensive empirical results that suggest that disentanglement metrics correlate with measures of fairness. This is an important finding insofar as it motivates continued research toward disentanglement. Reviewers have highlighted some issues with presentation (e.g., the title might be edited to explicitly mention fairness) which should be addressed in future versions of the manuscript.
