As the amount of data increases and algorithms become increasingly complex, humans have more trouble understanding their inner workings and explaining their predictions. In the last years, the research community has turned its attention to interpretability and solutions have been rapidly adopted by the industry. This workshop gives a brief introduction to this problem and the methods that have been proposed in the past years. We zoom in on some of the more popular methods and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. After the workshop you should be able to select and apply techniques suitable for your project.
