Interpreting Machine Learning Models

This course provides an introduction to interpreting machine learning models, specifically deep learning models that are pre-trained on large amounts of data using self-supervision. The course is designed to cover the breadth of different techniques for explaining predictions of classifiers trained on language, vision, and tabular data. You will get hands-on experience working with different algorithms for interpretability and benchmark widely used ML models for faithfulness and plausibility. The course will also cover the basics of how some explanations can help uncover artifacts and use those observations to build robust ML models.
