Explainable Machine Learning, Model Transparency, and the Right to Explanation


Check out this topical video from Predictive Analytics World founder Eric Siegel:

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.

  2. The Mazda CX-9 is generally well-regarded for its stylish design, smooth handling, and spacious interior, making it a popular choice in the midsize SUV market. However, like any vehicle, it is not without its potential issues. Some owners have reported concerns with the infotainment system and occasional glitches, though software updates may address these issues. Additionally, there have been isolated reports of transmission problems, but these seem to be relatively uncommon. As with any car, regular maintenance and timely servicing can help mitigate potential issues. Overall, the Mazda CX-9 has received positive reviews for its performance and features, but it’s always recommended to research the specific model year and consult consumer reviews for the most up-to-date information on any potential issues.
