Transparency, auditability, and stability of predictive models and results are typically key differentiators in effective machine learning applications. Patrick Hall shares tips and techniques learned through implementing interpretable machine learning solutions in industries like financial services, telecom, and health insurance.
Using a set of publicly available and highly annotated examples, Patrick walks you through several holistic approaches to interpretable machine learning. The examples use the well-known University of California Irvine (UCI) credit card dataset and popular open source packages to train constrained, interpretable machine learning models and visualize, explain, and test more complex machine learning models in the context of an example credit-risk application. Along the way, Patrick draws on his applied experience to highlight crucial success factors and common pitfalls not typically discussed in blog posts and open source software documentation, such as the importance of both local and global explanation and the approximate nature of nearly all machine learning explanation techniques.
