Title: Can you explain your model? Boosting Domain Knowledge and Decision Making with Model Interpretation

Speaker: Iván Lopez

Abstract: Modern Machine Learning models behave like black-boxes in which we input values and retrieve some predictions. Models can be evaluated over unseen data using the desired metrics, but this is not enough to gain the trust of business stakeholders, who would like to understand why the model is predicting what it is predicting.

Model interpretation sheds light on ML models. As data scientists, it is useful to know what is inside the black box to better understand the problem, identify biases, improve generalization, etc. Equally important, supporting business stakeholders with automatic explanations for every prediction fosters their trust and gains their interest on improving solutions, while also closing the gap between predictions and decision making.

In this talk, we share our work at Delivery Hero on extending traditional ML outputs with automatic explanations for decision making.

Speaker Bio:

Iván is a Machine Learning Engineer. He holds a Master degree in Datascience by the University of Nice and TUB. Since two years, he has been working at Delivery Hero implementing ML models to predict customers' behavior
