A sound introduction for practitioners to the exciting field of interpretable AI.

Pablo Roccatagliata, Torcuato Di Tella University
Look inside
AI doesn’t have to be a black box. These practical techniques help shine a light on your model’s mysterious inner workings. Make your AI more transparent, and you’ll improve trust in your results, combat data leakage and bias, and ensure compliance with legal requirements.

In Interpretable AI, you will learn:

  • Why AI models are hard to interpret
  • Interpreting white box models such as linear regression, decision trees, and generalized additive models
  • Partial dependence plots, LIME, SHAP and Anchors, and other techniques such as saliency mapping, network dissection, and representational learning
  • What fairness is and how to mitigate bias in AI systems
  • Implement robust AI systems that are GDPR-compliant

Interpretable AI opens up the black box of your AI models. It teaches cutting-edge techniques and best practices that can make even complex AI systems interpretable. Each method is easy to implement with just Python and open source libraries. You’ll learn to identify when you can utilize models that are inherently transparent, and how to mitigate opacity when your problem demands the power of a hard-to-interpret deep learning model.

about the technology

It’s often difficult to explain how deep learning models work, even for the data scientists who create them. Improving transparency and interpretability in machine learning models minimizes errors, reduces unintended bias, and increases trust in the outcomes. This unique book contains techniques for looking inside “black box” models, designing accountable algorithms, and understanding the factors that cause skewed results.

about the book

Interpretable AI teaches you to identify the patterns your model has learned and why it produces its results. As you read, you’ll pick up algorithm-specific approaches, like interpreting regression and generalized additive models, along with tips to improve performance during training. You’ll also explore methods for interpreting complex deep learning models where some processes are not easily observable. AI transparency is a fast-moving field, and this book simplifies cutting-edge research into practical methods you can implement with Python.
