a new telegram channel where will post about #explainableai (#XAI for short):
t.me/s/explainablea…
there are now many useful libraries available for doing #explainability of #AI models: SHAP, LIME, partial dependence plots PDP. And also the "classical" feature importance.

I was an eng leader on Facebook’s NewsFeed and my team was responsible for the feed ranking platform.

Every few days an engineer would get paged that a metric e.g., “likes” or “comments” is down.

It usually translated to a Machine Learning model performance issue. /thread
2/ The typical workflow to diagnose the alert by the engineer was to first check our internal monitoring system Unidash to see if the alert was indeed true and then dive into Scuba to diagnose it further.
3/ Scuba is a real-time analytics system that would store all the prediction logs and makes them available for slicing and dicing. It only supported filter and group by queries and was very fast.

I was a product manager on Samsung #ecommerce and we were testing a hypothesis that users were ready to adopt purchase of products via chat i.e. conversational commerce. I got a $1M budget to validate it. Here’s how lack of model explainability dooms business decisions. Read on…
We selected the most popular chat app, FB Messenger, to test this hypothesis. To accelerate the test, we ran ads with a promotion that opened a chat window directly into our commerce chatbot.
Now about the ad target. We had a database of millions of users who had previously engaged with the Samsung brand. The target of 300k users for the ad campaign was decided by an #ML model.

With the last week's launch of Google Cloud’s Explainable AI, the conversation around #ExplainableAI has accelerated.

But it begs the questions - Should Google be explaining their own AI algorithms? Who should be doing the explaining? /thread
2/ What do businesses need in order to trust the predictions?

a) They need explanations so they understand what’s going on behind the scenes.

b) They need to know for a fact that these explanations are accurate and trustworthy and come from a reliable source.
3/ Shouldn't there be a separation between church and state?

If Google is building models and is also explaining it for customers -- without third party involvement -- would it align with the incentives for customers to completely trust their AI models?

We've been working on #ExplainableAI at @fiddlerlabs for a year now, here is a thread on some of the lessons we learned over this time.
2/ There is no consensus on what "Explainability" means. And people use all of these words to mean it.
3/ However, one thing is clear:

"AI is a Black-Box and people want to look inside".

The reasons to look inside vary from Model Producers (Data Scientists) to Model Consumers (Business teams, Model validators, Regulators, etc).

It is amazing to see so many applications of game theory in modern software applications such as search ranking, internet ad auctions, recommendations, etc. An emerging application is in applying Shapley values to explain complex AI models. #ExplainableAI
Shapley value was named after its inventor Lloyd S. Shapley. It was devised as a method to distribute the value of a cooperative game among the players of the game proportional to their contribution to the game's outcome.
Suppose, 10 people came together to start a company that produces some revenue. How would you distribute the revenue of the company among the 10 people as a payoff so that the payoffs are fair and appropriate to their contributions?

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
