a blackbox -- data in, prediction out, that's it. And in some sense, how could
it be any other way? When you have a highly non-linear model with high degrees
of interactions, how can you possibly hope to have a simple understanding of
what the model is doing? Well, turns out there is an interesting (and
practical) line of research along these lines.</p>
<p>This post will dive into the ideas of a popular technique published in the last
few years call <em>SHapely Additive exPlanations</em> (or SHAP). It builds upon
previous work in this area by providing a unified framework to think
about explanation models as well as a new technique with this framework that
uses Shapely values. I'll go over the math, the intuition, and how it works.
No need for an implementation because there is already a nice little Python
package! Confused yet? Keep reading and I'll <em>explain</em>.</p>
