The Black Box “Problem”

Source: Deep Learning on Medium

In fact, data scientists and researchers are starting to lay the ground work for this suite of tools that, I believe, will allow us to truly look into the so-called black-box models. It’s just a matter of time until they are scaled and put into production for everyday workers.

In the meantime, we can poke and prod our models — look inside at the individual layers, check to see the output as we change the input, investigate the distribution of probabilities that come out, and a whole host other emerging methods.

The limit is your imagination.

Don’t be fooled when people label a whole field of study as magic, not understandable or unexplainable.
