In this capstone domain we are going to study how we can make machine learning systems more user friendly by exploiting additional knowledge we can derive from the system and present it to the user. These types of systems are called Explainable AI.
The example we are going to use in this class is object recognition in images. We are first going to learn about saliency and attention maps, then get to know a large publicly available image data set (COCO) and finally we are going to implement the Grad-CAM algorithm in PyTorch and apply it to the COCO image data set.
The quarter will end with a proposal for your capstone project, which you will be working on in the winter quarter.
This class will be entirely remote.
You can use the DSMLP cluster, which already has the COCO data set installed.
