Explainability by Design: A Methodology to Support Explanations in Decision-Making Systems
Editor’s note: Luc Moreau is a speaker for ODSC Europe 2022. Be sure to check out his talk, “Explainability by Design: a Methodology to Support Explanations in Decision-making Systems,” there! There are increasing calls for the explainability of data-intensive applications.  Such a demand for explainability stems... Read more
AutoML and the Future of Data Science
If you’re reading this, you likely already know what AutoML, or Automated Machine Learning, is. It’s a tool built by Google to automate the full machine learning pipeline, and Microsoft and Amazon have their own implementations in the cloud as well. Automated Machine Learning is built to conduct a... Read more
Don’t get us wrong, we love and use BI tools, but we believe that business logic should live somewhere more universal and accessible. It’s no secret that most companies use multiple downstream tools to visualize, report, analyze, and act on data. By downstream, I’m referring to... Read more

Understanding the Mechanism and Types of Recurrent Neural Networks
There are numerous machine learning problems in life that depend on time. For example, in financial fraud detection, we can’t just look at the present transaction; we should also consider previous transactions so that we can model based on their discrepancy. Using machine learning to solve such problems is called sequence learning, or sequence... Read more
