Explainable Machine learning (ExML) seminar



In this seminar we will discuss different methodologies in Explainable Machine Learning, which is concerned with understanding what information a Machine Learning system learns and how it uses this information for decision making. We cover both seminal works as well as recent advancements in the field, including post-hoc explainability approaches and inherently interpretable model designs.

The seminar will consist of an introductory meeting with a lecture at the beginning of the semester introducing the field and distributing papers, and a two-day block course in the semester break covering paper presentations and discussions. Students are expected to read into their assigned paper, the related literature, prepare a talk as well as a paper summary with critical discussion.
