Regularization and False Alarms Quantification: Two Sides of the Explainability Coin

by   Nima Safaei, et al.

Regularization is a well-established technique in machine learning (ML) to achieve an optimal bias-variance trade-off which in turn reduces model complexity and enhances explainability. To this end, some hyper-parameters must be tuned, enabling the ML model to accurately fit the unseen data as well as the seen data. In this article, the authors argue that the regularization of hyper-parameters and quantification of costs and risks of false alarms are in reality two sides of the same coin, explainability. Incorrect or non-existent estimation of either quantities undermines the measurability of the economic value of using ML, to the extent that might make it practically useless.
