Using DALEX To Explain Black-Box Models

Przemyslaw Biecek explains that there’s more than LIME for explaining black-box models:

I’ve heard about a number of consulting companies, that decided to use simple linear model instead of a black box model with higher performance, because ,,client wants to understand factors that drive the prediction’’.
And usually the discussion goes as following: ,,We have tried LIME for our black-box model, it is great, but it is not working in our case’’, ,,Have you tried other explainers?’’, ,,What other explainers’’?

So here you have a map of different visual explanations for black-box models.

Check out DALEX, which includes a Jupyter notebook example.  H/T R-Bloggers

Combining Plots In R With cowplot

Abdul Majed Raja shows how to use the cowplot library in R to merge together independent plots into a single image: The way it works in cowplot is that, we have assign our individual ggplot-plots as an R object (which is by default of type ggplot). These objects are finally used by cowplot to produce […]

Where Machine Learning And Econometrics Collide

Dave Giles shares some thoughts on how machine learning and econometrics relate: What is Machine Learning (ML), and how does it differ from Statistics (and hence, implicitly, from Econometrics)? Those are big questions, but I think that they’re ones that econometricians should be thinking about. And if I were starting out in Econometrics today, I’d […]
