Machine learning models often exhibit complex behavior that is difficult to understand. Recent research in explainable AI has produced promising techniques to explain the inner workings of such models using feature contribution vectors. These vectors are helpful in a wide variety of applications. However, there are many parameters involved in this process and determining which settings are best is difficult due to the subjective nature of evaluating interpretability.
To this end, we introduce ExplainExplore: an interactive explanation system to explore explanations that fit the subjective preference of data scientists. We leverage the domain knowledge of the data scientist to find optimal parameter settings and instance perturbations, and enable the discussion of the model and its explanation with domain experts.
We present a use case on a real-world dataset to demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach for the exploration and tuning of machine learning explanations.
