What we're about

ODSC brings together the open source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision makers from data centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open source tools

Webinar: "Model Explainability with SHAP for Non-Tabular Data"

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/model-explainability-with-shap-fo-non-tabular-data

Topic: Model Explainability with SHAP for Non-Tabular Data

Speaker#1: Michael Amoako, Program Manager (MAIDAP) at Microsoft

Michael is a Program Manager in Microsoft’s AI Development Acceleration Program. He is involved in Microsoft’s Responsible AI Strategy efforts, a member of the AI Ethics Fairness and Inclusion group, and has worked on projects including explainability techniques in AI, Natural Language Processing, and Computer Vision.

Speaker#2: Scott Lundberg, Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research and an Affiliate Assistant Professor at the University of Washington

Scott is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research and an Affiliate Assistant Professor at the University of Washington. His work focuses on explainable artificial intelligence and its application to problems in medicine, healthcare, and finance.

Speaker#3: Vivek Chettiar, Software Engineer (MAIDAP) at Microsoft

Vivek is a Software Engineer in Microsoft’s AI Development Acceleration Program. He received his Masters of Engineering in Computer Science from Cornell University, and has worked on a wide-range of AI and large-scale data projects.

Abstract:
In this talk, we will discuss new developments made to extend SHAP, a blackbox-explainer based on game-theoretic methods, to better support non-tabular data scenarios, including Image-to-Text, Image-to-Multiclass, Text-to-Text, and Text-to-Multiclass. This includes new tight integration with popular libraries like Transformers and MLFlow.

Main learning points:
1. How can I use SHAP for non-tabular data scenarios.
2. How can I benchmark explainability methods?
3. How can I use SHAP in my AI development workflows?
