Altruist: Argumentative Explanations through Local Interpretations of Predictive Models

by   Ioannis Mollas, et al.

Interpretable machine learning is an emerging field providing solutions on acquiring insights into machine learning models' rationale. It has been put in the map of machine learning by suggesting ways to tackle key ethical and societal issues. However, existing techniques of interpretable machine learning are far from being comprehensible and explainable to the end user. Another key issue in this field is the lack of evaluation and selection criteria, making it difficult for the end user to choose the most appropriate interpretation technique for its use. In this study, we introduce a meta-explanation methodology that will provide truthful interpretations, in terms of feature importance, to the end user through argumentation. At the same time, this methodology can be used as an evaluation or selection tool for multiple interpretation techniques based on feature importance.
