    Thu, Jun 04, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Faculty from USC Dornsife, Keck School of Medicine at USC and USC Viterbi School of Engineering, Faculty

    Talk Title: Social Media and the Post-COVID-19 Landscape

    Abstract: As the pandemic has unfolded, social media has once again demonstrated how it can inform -“ or mislead -“ by encouraging the spread of literally deadly information. Join us as faculty from USC Dornsife, Keck School of Medicine at USC and USC Viterbi School of Engineering converge to discuss the implications of misinformation from political, social and engineering perspectives -“ and how it could alter the course of social media.

    Host: USC Dornsife, Keck School of Medicine, and USC Viterbi

    University Calendar


    Ph.D. Defense - Michael Tsang 6/11 2:00 pm "Interpretable Machine Learning Models via Feature Interaction Discovery"

    Ph.D. Candidate: Michael Tsang
    Date: Thursday, June 11, 2020
    Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    Committee: Yan Liu (Chair), Emily Putnam-Hornstein, Xiang Ren
    Title: Interpretable Machine Learning Models via Feature Interaction Discovery

    Abstract:
    The impact of machine learning prediction models has created a growing need for us to understand why they make their predictions. The interpretation of these models is important to reveal their fundamental behavior, to obtain scientific insights into data, and to help us trust automatic predictions. In this dissertation, we examine how to explain black-box prediction models via feature interaction detection and attribution, i.e. if features influence each other and how these interactions contribute to predictions, respectively.
    We first discuss how feature interaction detection leads to model interpretations of diverse domains such as image/text classification and automatic recommendation. Here, we focus on the special case of recommendation where interaction detection improves not only model interpretability but also prediction performance. We then discuss how to attribute predictions to feature interactions in a way that is simultaneously interpretable, model-agnostic, principled, and scalable. Our discussion culminates in the unification of interaction detection and attribution to yield general prediction visualizations that are both intuitive and insightful.
