A computer can keep you in jail, or deny you a job, a loan, insurance coverage, or housing – and yet you cannot face your accuser. The predictive models generated by machine learning to drive these weighty decisions are generally kept locked up as a secret, unavailable for audit, inspection, or interrogation. The video above covers explainable machine learning and the loudly-advocated machine learning standards transparency and the right to explanation. Eric discusses why these standards generally are not met and overviews the policy hurdles and technical challenges that are holding us back.
