Understanding Complex Machine Learning Models

Discover how you can get more from your modeling efforts to drive results.

About the webinar

It’s never been easier to build machine learning models. So why are so many machine learning models not effectively used?

One of the reasons is that complex machine learning models often lack the transparency and trust that an organization needs to confidently rely on their decisions.

Understanding black-box machine learning models and assessing whether their logic is in line with business expectations is important in a modern AI-driven organization.

Watch this webinar to hear business and academic experts share how organizations can realize trust in machine learning models to better reap the benefits.

Why attend?

  • Learn key considerations for trustworthy machine learning.
  • Hear developments in academic research that drive trust in models.
  • Discover how data-centric AI closes the loop.
