3 E's of AI: Creating explainable AI - IoT Agenda

#artificialintelligence 

Many companies rush to operationalize AI models that are neither understood nor auditable in the race to build predictive models as quickly as possible with open source tools that many users don't fully understand. In my data science organization, we use two techniques -- blockchain and explainable latent features -- that dramatically improve the explainability of the AI models we build. In 2018 I produced a patent application (16/128,359 USA) around using blockchain to ensure that all of the decisions made about a machine learning model, a fundamental component of many AI solutions, are recorded and auditable. My patent describes how to codify analytic and machine learning model development using blockchain technology to associate a chain of entities, work tasks and requirements with a model, including testing and validation checks. The blockchain substantiate a trail of decision-making.
