Innovation and competition are driving analysts and data scientists toward increasingly complex predictive modeling and machine learning algorithms. This complexity makes these models accurate but also makes their predictions difficult to understand. When accuracy outpaces interpretability, human trust suffers, affecting business adoption, regulatory oversight, and model documentation.
Banking, insurance, and healthcare in particular require predictive models that are interpretable. In this ebook, Patrick Hall and Navdeep Gill from H2O.ai thoroughly introduce the idea of machine learning interpretability and examine a set of machine learning techniques, algorithms, and models to help data scientists improve the accuracy of their predictive models while maintaining interpretability.
