Delivering Technology for People through Explainable AI (XAI)

About the talk   Machine learning and its models have been largely studied to derive efficient solutions for problems ranging from regression, classification to clustering. However, explaining such models and their underlying predictions remains an open problem, mainly due to the model complexity and interpretability. This work presents our journey towards Explainable AI (i.e., how […]
