Crash Lecture Series.

The University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland and University of Bordeaux are happy to present this lecture series as a preview of a longer course that may start in Autumn 2021. This course can be included to the AIDA curriculum for the International Artificial Intelligence Doctoral Academy.

Crash course Overview:

The “where and why” of interpretability. Reading of taxonomy papers and perspectives.

The “three dimensions” of interpretability. Activation maximizations, LIME surrogates, Class Activation maps and Concept Attribution methods seen in details with hands-on exercises.

Evaluation of interpretability methods. Reading of papers and hands-on exercises.

Prerequisites:

Confidence in linear algebra, probability, machine learning. Experience with Python, numpy, tensorflow.

To guarantee proper supervision we keep the number of participants limited. Make sure to reserve a spot for this or the fall semester by registering.

Note: Lecture 3 “From attention models and saliency maps to the explainability of Deep Neural Networks” by the Prof. Jenny Benois-Pineau will be open to a wider audience. You can attend the lecture at this link.
