(Presentation and Q&A by Edward Adcock)


After a brief look at the challenges facing machine learning adoption into mainstream applications, we will dive into the details of explainability and what this means for regulation and business. Specifically, we will be looking at why XAI is important, what properties it should exhibit and the scope. We will then look at some models that are ‘naturally’ explainable with some relevant financial use cases to help illustrate the points. Next, we will look at some model agnostic methods that can be applied to deep learning architectures and do a deep dive on two specific methods that are being widely adopted. Finally, we will look at the need for a quality assessment framework around explainability and the current best practice.
