Explainable AI for Financial Services

Centelon develops AI based decision systems for financial services. One of the key regulatory requirements is to explain the model to the authorities. We have deployed multiple methods such as Local Interpretable Model Agnostic Explanations (LIME) and Game theory based Shapley Values.

In the talk, I would take the audience through the business case, mathematics behind various explanatory models, design considerations and code demonstration
