Daniel Sturman (Cloudera, USA): Interpretable machine learning products

Machine learning algorithms are increasingly making decisions for and about people in modern society. Algorithms decide which e-mails reach our inboxes, whether we're approved for credit, and whom we get the opportunity to date. An interpretable algorithm is one whose decisions you can explain to your clients and to your regulators as well. You can better rely on such a model to be safe, accurate and useful since you understand it. An accurate model that is also interpretable can offer insights that can be used to change real-world outcomes for the better. Interpretable machine learning will allow for a more collaborative relationship between machines and humans and will help to resolve ethical concerns related to the use of ML.

The presentation will cover how interpretability can make deep neural networks models easier to understand, and describes LIME, an open source tool that can be used to explore what machine learning classifiers (or models) are doing.
