The van der Schaar Lab’s 21st Inspiration Exchange session took place on October 25, 2022. The session covered Frontiers in ML Interpretability. This session was particularly engaging and interactive, with more than 150 participants joining the session live.
To start the session, Prof. Mihaela van der Schaar presented a tutorial and introduction to ML interpretability, motivating their use in the context of healthcare and medicine. Subsequently, Ph.D. student Jonathan Crabbé presented his recent work on Concept Activation Regions, a generalised framework for concept-based explanations. Additionally, Ph.D. student Alicia Curth presented the ITErpretability benchmark, which utilises interpretability as a means to benchmark treatment effect models.
We then held our roundtable discussion, where our industry guests Dr Been Kim (Google Brain) and Dr Jianying Hu (IBM) shared their perspectives on ML and medical impacts of the presented works. The session was then opened up to the audience for Q&A and general discussion.
