Deep Learning

In this human world, we have different ways to establish and measure trustworthiness. The establishment of the trust is continuously developing in artificial intelligence.

Recently, the works that provide a new metric that measures the trust in deep learning systems in an intuitive and interpretable way.

Production Deep Learning is Now Accessible. How?

How is Machine Learning Trusted?

Machine Learning researchers measure the trust of their models through metrics such as accuracy, precision, and F1 scores. These metric compares the number of correct and incorrect forecasts made by machine learning model in many ways. The answers to the questions such as if a model is making a random guess or it has learnt.

The field shows a growth that interests in explainability, which is a set of technique that tries to interpret thoughts by deep neural networking.

Some technique highlights the pixels that have contributed to a deep learning model’s output.

Explainability techniques help that make sense of how a deep learning model work, but not when and where they can and can’t be trusted.

The developer and users of AI systems should compute continuously, and these used metrics are monitored for areas in which deep learning models cannot be trusted.

There are two types of people:

  1. Who is too confident in their wrong decisions?
  2. Who is too hesitant about right decisions?

Both are an untrusted partner.

We will work with people who have balanced behavior. They should be confident about the correct answer and also specify when tasks are beyond their ability.

The first metric was introduced by the researchers and measured by an AI model confidence in right and wrong answers. Like traditional metrics, it takes into account the number of right and wrong forecasts a machine learning model but also factors in their confidence scores to penalize overconfidence and overcautiousness.

Higher confidence score will receive the highest rewards. But the metrics will also reward wrong answers by the inverse of the confidence score, i.e., 100% confidence scores.

Low confidence scores in a wrong classification can earn as much reward as high confidence in the proper classification.

The two behaviours will receive fewer rewards are highly confident in wrong forecasts and low confidence in right forecasts.

This metric has precisions and accuracy scores about how many right predictions your machine learning model makes imperfection.

Setting a Hierarchy of Trusted Score.

This trust enables us to measure the trust level of single output made by our deep learning models.

The researchers expand and provide three more metrics that enables to evaluate the overall trusted level of machine learning models.

First, the trust density measures the trusted level of a model on a specific output class. Trust density visualizes the distribution trust of the machine learning model across multiple examples. A robust model should show higher density toward the right (question-answer trust = 1.0) and lower density toward the left (question-answer trust = 0.0).

Trusted densities

The second metric is the trust spectrum that zooms out and measures the model trust across various classes when tested on a finite set of inputs. When visualized, the trust spectrum provides an excellent overview of where you trust machine learning models.

Finally, from an interpretation perspective, NetTrustScore summarizes the information of the trust spectrum into a single metric.

The proposed NetTrustScores are quantitative scores that indicate how well the deep neural networking confidence is expected to be possible answer scenarios that can occur.

Machine Learning Trust Matrix

Trust Matrix resembles a visual-aid that displays as a glance of overall measures of a Machine Learning.

The colours of each square show its trust level, with bright colours representing high and dark colours representing low trust.

A perfect model should have bright-coloured square reaches diagonally from top-left to bottom-right, where forecasts and ground-truth crossway. A trust model can have squares that are off the diagonal, but those squares should be coloured brightly as well. A lousy model will quickly show itself with dark-coloured squares.

For instance, the red circle resembles a switch that was forecasted as a street sign by a machine learning model with a low trust score. It means that the model is very confident that it saw a street symbol.

In reality, this will search for a switch.

On the other, the pink circle represents a high trust level on a “water bottle” that was classified as a “laptop.” It means the machine learning model had provided a low confidence score, signalling that it was doubtful of its classification.

Putting trust measures

The hierarchical structure of the trust measures proposed makes it useful. For instance, while choosing a machine learning model for a task, you can shortlist candidate by review of NetTrustScore and trust matrix.

You can further investigate a candidate by comparing the trust spectrum on multiple classes and compare their performance on a single class on the density scores.

Using trust measures compares different machine learning models.

These trust measures will help you quickly find the best model for your task or find essential areas where you can make improvements to your model.

There is a progress in work with many areas of machine learning. In this current form, the machine learning trust metrics only apply to a limited set of supervised learning problems, namely classification tasks.

For the future, the researchers will expand the work of creating measures for other tasks like object identification, speech recognition and series of time.

They are also exploring trust in unsupervised machine learning algorithms.

These proposed metrics are not perfect, but the hope is to push the conversation towards better quantitative metrics for calculating the overall trust of deep neural networks that helps in guiding practitioners and regulators for producing, deploying, and certifying in-depth learning solutions that can be trusted to operate in real-world, mission-critical scenarios.
