Can Artificial Intelligence Really be “Explainable”?

I myself do epidemiologic research, which rarely calls for developing machine learning models. Instead, I spend my time developing logistic regression models that I have to be able to interpret for the broader scientific (and sometimes non-scientific) community. I have to be able to explain in some easy, risk-communication way not only the…See More

How do you know what independent variables to include in a regression model?

After a few biostatistics classes, I began fitting my first logistic regression model using my physician friend’s data on tumors excised from skin cancer patients. I realized that although we were very clear about the dependent variable we were trying to predict – a certain feature of the tumor – I really did not know how to pick the independent variables that belonged in…See More

Monika Wahi replied to Lee Schlesinger's discussion How did your company choose a BI tool?
"Hi Lee, I hate to say it, but choosing a BI tool is like choosing any other software - you have to go through the same process of getting stakeholders together, writing logical requirements, then writing functional requirements (the criteria you…"
