Explaining the Explainable AI: A 2-Stage Approach

As artificial intelligence (AI) models, especially those using deep learning, have gained prominence over the last eight or so years [8], they are now significantly impacting society, ranging from loan decisions to self-driving cars. Inherently though, a majority of these models are opaque, and hence following their recommendations blindly in human critical applications can raise issues such as fairness, safety, reliability, along with many others. This has led to the emergence of a subfield in AI called explainable AI (XAI) [7]. XAI is primarily concerned with understanding or interpreting the decisions made by these opaque or black-box models so that one can appropriate trust, and in some cases, have even better performance through human-machine collaboration [5].

While there are multiple views on what XAI is [12] and how explainability can be formalized [4, 6], it is still unclear as to what XAI truly is and why it is hard to formalize mathematically. The reason for this lack of clarity is that not only must the model and/or data be considered but also the final consumer of the explanation. Most XAI methods [11, 9, 3], given this intermingled view, try to meet all these requirements at the same time. For example, many methods try to identify a sparse set of features that replicate the decision of the model. The sparsity is a proxy for the consumer’s mental model. An important question asks whether we can disentangle the steps that XAI methods are trying to accomplish? This may help us better understand the truly challenging parts as well as the simpler parts of XAI, not to mention it may motivate different types of methods.

Two-Stages of XAI

We conjecture that the XAI process can be broadly disentangled into two parts, as depicted in Figure 1. The first part is uncovering what is truly happening in the model that we want to understand, while the second part is about conveying that information to the user in a consumable way. The first part is relatively easy to formalize as it mainly deals with analyzing how well a simple proxy model might generalize either locally or globally with respect to (w.r.t.) data that is generated using the black-box model. Rather than having generalization guarantees w.r.t. the underlying distribution, we now want them w.r.t. the (conditional) output distribution of the model. Once we have some way of figuring out what is truly important, a second step is to communicate this information. This second part is much less clear as we do not have an objective way of characterizing an individual’s mind. This part, we believe, is what makes explainability as a whole so challenging to formalize. A mainstay for a lot of XAI research over the last year or so has been to conduct user studies to evaluate new XAI methods.

Why Explainable AI is compulsory for Data Scientists?

Let’s understand why an explainable AI is making lot of fuss nowadays. Consider an example a person(consumer) Mr. X goes to bank for a personal loan and bank takes his demographic details, credit bureau details and last 6 month bank statement. After taking all the documents bank runs this on their production deployed machine Learning Model for checking whether this person will default on loan or not.

A complex ML model which is deployed on their production says that this person has 55% chances of getting default on his loan and subsequently bank rejects Mr. X personal loan application.

Now Mr X is very angry and puzzled about his application rejection. So he went to bank manager for the explanation why his personal loan application got rejected. He looks his application and got puzzled that his application is good for granting a loan but why model has predicted false. This chaos has created doubt in manager’s mind about each loan that was previously rejected by the machine learning model. Although accuracy of the model is more than 98% percentage. But still it fails to gain the trust.

Every data scientist wants to deploy model on production which has highest accuracy in prediction of output. Below is the graph shown between interpretation and accuracy of the model.

Interpreability Vs Accuracy of the Model

If you notice the increasing the accuracy of the model the interpreability of the model decrease significantly and that obstructs complex model to be used in production.

This is where Explainable AI rescue us. In Explainable AI does not only predict the outcome it also explain the process and features included to reach at the conclusion. Isn’t great right that model is explaining itself.

ML and AI application has reached to almost in each industry like Banking & Finance, Healthcare, Manufacturing, E commerce, etc. But still people are afraid to use the complex model in their field just because of they think that the complex machine learning model are black box and will not able to explain the output to businesses and stakeholders. I hope until now you have understood why Explainable AI is required for better and efficient use of machine learning and deep learning models.

Now, Let’s understand what is Explainable AI and How does it works ?

Explainable AI is set of tools and methods in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to explain the model output process that how an model has reached to particular output for a given data points.

Consider the above example where Mr. X loan has rejected and Bank Manager is not able to figure out why his application got rejected.Here an explainable can give the important features and their importance considered by the model to reach at this output. So now Manager has his report,

  1. He has more confidence on the model and it’s output.
  2. He can use more complex model as he is able to explain the output of the model to business and stakeholders.
  3. Now Mr. X got an explanation from bank about their loan rejection. He exactly knows what needs to be improved in order to get loan from the banks

Explainable and Reproducible Machine Learning Model Development

With ML models serving real people, misclassified cases (which are a natural consequence of using ML) are affecting peoples’ lives and sometimes treating them very unfairly. It makes the ability to explain your models’ predictions a requirement rather than just a nice to have.

Machine learning model development is hard, especially in the real world.

Typically, you need to:

  • understand the business problem,
  • gather the data,
  • explore it,
  • set up a proper validation scheme,
  • implement models and tune parameters,
  • deploy them in a way that makes sense for the business,
  • inspect model results only to find out new problems that you have to deal with.

And that is not all.

You should have the experiments you run and models you train versioned in case you or anyone else needs to inspect them or reproduce the results in the future. From my experience, this moment comes when you least expect it and the feeling of “I wish I had thought about it before” is so very real (and painful).

But there is even more.

Understanding Explainability In Computer Vision

The session “Explainable AI For Computer Vision” was presented at the first of its kind Computer Vision conference, CVDC 2020 by Avni Gupta, who is the Technology Lead at Synduit. Organised by the Association of Data Scientists (ADaSCi), the premier global professional body of data science and machine learning professionals, it is a first-of-its-kind virtual conference on Computer Vision.

The primary aspect of the talk is computer vision models most of the time act as a black box and it is hard to explain what is actually going behind the models or how the outcomes are coming from. She also mentioned some of the important libraries which can help to make explainable AI possible in Computer Vision models.

According to Gupta, many a time, when developers create a computer vision model, they find themselves interacting with a backbox and unaware of what feature extraction is happening at each layer. With the help of explainable AI, it becomes easier to comprehend and know when enough layers have been added and what feature extraction has taken place at each layer.

Practical Explainable AI: Loan Approval Use Case

Black-Box AI

Explainability is extremely crucial in systems that are responsible for carrying out mission-critical tasks. For example, in healthcare, if scientists are relying on AI models to help them figure out whether the patient will have cancer or not, they need to be 100% sure of their diagnoses otherwise this can result in death, a lot of lawsuits and a lot of damage done in trust. Nature is this problem is so intense that explainability sits at the core of this problem: the data scientists and the human operators, in this case, the doctors need to understand how the machine learning system is behaving and how did it come to a decision.

Explainable AI is also important in finance or fintech in particular due to the growing adoption of machine learning solutions for credit scoring, loan approval, insurance, investment decisions and so on. Here again, there is a cost associated with the wrong decisions by the machine learning system: so there is a huge need to understand how the model actually works.

Using black-box AI increases business risk and exposes the businesses to a deep downside — from credit card applications to determining disease to criminal justice.

The reason why black-box models are not desirable becomes more clear when we look at how the business functions as a whole:

For the business decision-maker, data scientists need to answer the question of why they can trust our models, for IT & Operation, data scientists need to tell them how can they monitor and debug if an error occurs, for the data scientist, they need to know how they can further improve the accuracy of their models and finally, for regulators and auditors, they need to be able to get an answer to whether our AI system is fair or not?

Enter explainable AI

Explainable AI aims at providing clear and transparent predictions. An end-to-end system that provides decisions and explanations to the user and ultimately provides automated feedback to constantly improve the AI system. Remember, xAI is highly driven by the feedback so is a two-way interaction between the human and the AI system.

In the end, we should understand why behind the model, the impact of the model, where the model fails and what recommendations to provide.
