The Experian Approach: Boosting Explainability

Now that the regulators are setting the path to using ML models in the calculation of capital, a crucial step in the process is the ability to explain the model outcomes. When consulted about the use of ML models, our clients mention the explainability issue as one of the major concerns. Experian has developed an advanced approach to improve explainability of ML models, so that outcomes of these models can easily be explained and understood by stakeholders or customers.

Explanations are in the form of variable importance ranking which can then easily be translated into reason codes. This is achieved by different advanced techniques which derive importance score for each feature based on partial dependencies and SHAP values. SHAP quantifies the contribution that each feature brings to the prediction made by the model. From that, a confidence level is taken to understand the real importance of individual features.

Experian has also developed a standardised framework for developing and deploying ML models with the required level of explainability. This allows the process to be 50% faster than the normal modelling processes. Experian's Explainability plug-in is compatible with tree-based ML models.
