In this paper, we study the behaviour of the triplet loss and show that it can be exploited to limit the biases created and perpetuated by machine learning models. Our fair classifier uses the collapse of the triplet loss when its margin is greater than the maximum distance between two points in the latent space, in the case of stochastic triplet selection.
