First of all, modern machine learning algorithms tend to behave as black boxes. As a result, we have traded understanding of the inner workings of a model for increases in accuracy and performance. In the era of GDPR and global concerns about data privacy and algorithm bias, understanding how a machine learning model makes a decision has increased importance. Historically there have been numerous efforts in the field, and it is still rapidly developing. Consequently, this talk is a tour of what recent xAI (explainable AI) methods and associated R tools are available. Furthermore, we look at how they work and provide some practical stack integration advice. We will cover the packages mlr, lime, iml, dalex, shap, and the sdmexplain (one of his packages).


When: Monday, July 29, 2019
Venue: Eurospace AG, Klosterstr. 71, BERLIN 10179
