Full Title: Interpretable Machine Learning with Python — What qualities make for a highly rated chocolate bar?

In the first part of this workshop, we will provide some context to what value interpretation can provide to machine learning practitioners. In a nutshell: models learn from our data, and we can learn a lot from our models… but only if we interpret them!
In part two, we kick off the more hands-on portion of the workshop! We will train classification models with chocolate bar ratings to identify which ones are highly recommended by chocolate experts: one SVM model on tabular data and a LightGBM NLP model. We will then employ popular model-agnostic interpretation methods to interpret these "black-box" models' decisions such as SHAP and Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations (LIME). That way, chocolatiers can understand what features correlate the most with these high ratings.
