\section{Model cards}
\href{https://arxiv.org/abs/1810.03993}{Model cards} are ``short documents accompanying trained machine learning models that provide benchmarked evaluation in a variety of conditions, such as across different cultural, demographic, or phenotypic groups \ldots and intersectional groups \ldots that are relevant to the intended application domains. Model cards also disclose the context in which models are intended to be used, details of the performance evaluation procedures, and other relevant information.''
Model cards were motivated by systematic bias in commercial applications that were discovered only after the models were released. To counter that, the authors ``advocate for measures of model performance that contain quantitative evaluation results to be broken down by individual cultural, demographic, or phenotypic groups, domain-relevant conditions, and intersectional analysis combining two (or more) groups and conditions.'' The emphasis on ethic aspects of the measurements is a distinguishing feature of model cards, compared to other proposals to document models.
