Explain Yourself! The scope of understanding and explanation from machine learning models

Prize: NWOVeniScientific


Machine learning models influence impactful decisions. However, such models are increasingly complex and opaque, challenging current philosophical theories of explanation and understanding. This project develops a new framework for identifying whether understanding from machine learning models is possible, and the impact these models have on theories of explanation.
