Achieving explainable modelling is sometimes considered synonymous with restricting the choice of AI model to specific family of models that are considered inherently explainable. We will review this family of AI models. However, our discussion goes far beyond the conventional explainable model families and includes more recent and novel approaches such as joint prediction and explanation, hybrid models, and more. Ideally we can avoid the black-box problem from the beginning by developing a model that is explainable by design. The traditional approach to achieve explainable modelling is to adopt from a specific family of models that are considered explainable.
Explainable AI cannot be implemented as an afterthought or add-on to an existing system. It must be part of the original design. Beyond Limits systems cover the full spectrum of explainability, providing high-level system alerts, plus drill-down reasoning traces with detailed evidence, probability, and risk. Explainable AI helps take the mystery out of the technology and is the first step in enabling artificial intelligence to work with people in a trusting and mutually beneficial relationship.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most exciting technologies in the world right now. In particular, it's bringing life to ideas that were once just a figment of Hollywood films. However, it has also created polarised viewpoints. Many AI experts are working towards reaping its full potential, while others worry about creating a Black Mirror-esque reality. Perhaps the best way to meet in the middle is by exploring explainable AI.
