Gradient-based Methods for Deep Model Interpretability
research — last modified Nov 18, 2021

In his research work, Idiap student, Suraj Srinivas proposes gradient-based methods for characterizing model behavior for the purposes of knowledge transfer and post-hoc model interpretation. Broadly, gradients capture the variation of some output feature of the model upon unit variation of an input feature, and thus encodes the local model behavior while being agnostic to the underlying model architectural choices.
