Working with data and various machine learning (ML) models’ is indispensable in the current and future way of working. In some cases, machine learning (ML) models’ even outperform humans. But rather than simply accepting the insights machine learning (ML) models’ provide, we should view them critically. Human work remains the base for new technology meaning it is prone to mistakes, misunderstandings or uncertainty. We need AI to provide clear explanations on its results in order to avoid severe negative impact on various stakeholders. So how do you ensure that the models you build understand what you mean during programming and how can you understand its results?


Location: TBD
