Braneshop - Introduction to Explainable AI: Opening the black box!
Date and Time
With the growing prevalence of AI systems within the business, we need to make sure we can understand and control their decisions.
How can we build confidence and trust in AI? How can we understand a decision made by AI? Given a predicted outcome, how can we modify the input to get a different outcome? (i.e. What would we need to change to get a better insurance rating, or what activities in our business do we need to change to influence certain metrics?)
In the session, we will learn what XAI is, how it's being applied across industries, where the research is, and how you can begin to adopt this into your businesses.
Some questions you'll be able to answer after attending this event:
- What is Explainable AI?
- Who is using it and how well does it work?
- What do I need to do to adopt it?
- What alternatives exist in order to understand the decision-making of AI models?

The Braneshop Team
We're here to help you understand and adopt AI. At the Braneshop, we love all things AI. We spend our time bringing diverse people into the field, and removing the barriers for those that have faced them, so that the resulting technology better reflects our communities, and addresses all our needs. We know that AI can be used for amazing things, but also that there are many problems and potential solutions that won't be discovered unless everyone is involved. This is our vision: the powerful capabilities of AI in the hands of us all. We specialise in teaching these techniques in an intuitive and hands-on way. Our workshops are organised in a group setting and learning takes place through a mix of theory and practice.
