AI is a powerful tool – with great power comes greater responsibility. Explainable AI (“XAI” for short) is AI humans can understand. XAI plays a critical role in the AI world – it’s the how and the why behind AI and ML previously unseen processes – moving it from the “black box” to a “glass box.”
While AI can generate enormous benefits, black box models lead to project failures and place businesses at needless risk – XAI models explain how an algorithm arrives at a specific decision, thereby attaining human trust. Since powerful machine learning models are too complex for anyone to comprehend or explain, XAI solves the problem with building models that are accurate and inherently intelligible.
Businesses need explainable AI to harness the technology’s true potential. Explainability enables a wide range of business stakeholders to audit, trust, de-bias, improve, gain insight from and partner with AI systems.
