Abstract: Data scientists frequently refrain from using sophisticated machine learning approaches as they are considered too "black box". But what does it actually mean for a model to be a black box? Why should we care? And is human decision-making so transparent anyway? In this session, Data Scientists from DataRobot will show how modern techniques are able to make any model explainable, and put to bed the black box debate once and for all.
