Interpretability of complex machine learning models is a growing concern. This package helps to understand key factors that drive the decision made by complicated predictive model (so called black box model). This is achieved through local approximations that are either based on additive regression like model or CART like model that allows for higher interactions. The methodology is based on Tulio Ribeiro, Singh, Guestrin (2016) <doi:10.1145/2939672.2939778>. More details can be found in Staniak, Biecek (2018) <arXiv:1804.01955>.

Kendall random walks are a continuous-space Markov chains generated by the Kendall generalized convolution. This package provides tools for simulating these random walks and studying distributions related to them. For more information about Kendall random walks see Jasiulis-Go<c5><82>dyn (2014) <arXiv:1412.0220>.

Local explanations of machine learning models describe, how features contributed to a single prediction. This package implements an explanation method based on LIME (Local Interpretable Model-agnostic Explanations, see Tulio Ribeiro, Singh, Guestrin (2016) <doi:10.1145/2939672.2939778>) in which interpretable inputs are created based on local rather than global behaviour of each original feature.
