ENBIS Workshop: "Interpretability for Industry 4.0"

12 – 13 July 2021; Online

A 2 day online Workshop on "Interpretability for Industry 4.0" will be held on 12/13 July 2021

Objectives

Interpretability is a key issue to develop insightful statistical and machine learning approaches in business and industry.

The workshop to be held in July 2021 in Naples, is based on 3 pillars

  1. Explore the connections between machine learning tools, sensitivity analysis and rule-based systems.
  2. Exploit the contribution of generalized additive models for the development and visualization of interpretable statistical models.
  3. Analyze and propose monitoring tools for Additive Manufacturing (AM) systems

A half-day is dedicated to each topic, and will offer deep methodological insights together with real-world industrial motivations. The academic state of the art together with the industrial motivations and motivations would be complement by related software resources or specific applications or extensions. In addition, each half-day will end with a round-table providing a closing discussion challenging the different views of interpretability while addressing general issues like:

  • what are the issues and concerns of interpretability in statistical models?
  • what are the pros and cons of each approach of interpretability?
