Xiangmeng Wang, Qian Li, Dianer Yu, Guandong Xu
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose a novel Counterfactual Explainable Recommendation (CERec) to generate item attribute-based counterfactual explanations meanwhile to boost recommendation performance.  ...  Counterfactual explanations interpret the recommendation mechanism via exploring how minimal alterations on items or users affect the recommendation decisions.  ...  Explainable Recommendation Explainable recommendation is proven to improve user satisfaction [23] and system transparency [24] .  ...

FIND:Explainable Framework for Meta-learning [article]

Xinyue Shao, Hongzhi Wang, Xiao Zhu, Feng Xiong
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This paper proposes FIND, an interpretable meta-learning framework that not only can explain the recommendation results of meta-learning algorithm selection, but also provide a more complete and accurate  ...  Since the traditional meta-learning technique lacks explainability, as well as shortcomings in terms of transparency and fairness, achieving explainability for meta-learning is crucial.  ...  On the other hand, recommendation explainability is the explainability of the leaning algorithm recommended by meta-learning.  ...

Interpretable Credit Application Predictions With Counterfactual Explanations [article]

Rory Mc Grath, Luca Costabello, Chan Le Van, Paul Sweeney, Farbod Kamiab, Zhao Shen, Freddy Lecue
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We predict credit applications with off-the-shelf, interchangeable black-box classifiers and we explain single predictions with counterfactual explanations.  ...  Our contribution is two-fold: i) we propose positive counterfactuals, i.e. we adapt counterfactual explanations to also explain accepted loan applications, and ii) we propose two weighting strategies to  ...  Recommending to change these types of features would be of little use.  ...

A General Model for Fair and Explainable Recommendation in the Loan Domain (Short paper)

Giandomenico Cornacchia, Fedelucio Narducci, Azzurra Ragone
2021 ACM Conference on Recommender Systems  
To this end, in this paper, we propose a model for generating natural language and counterfactual explanations for a loan recommender system with the aim of providing fairer and more transparent suggestions  ...  Recommender systems have been widely used in the Financial Services domain and can play a crucial role in personal loan comparison platforms.  ...  Figure 1 represents our proposed workflow for generating an explanation and a counterfactual explanation in order to recommend also corrective actions to the user.  ...
