In this episode of the Data Exchange I speak with Krishna Gade, founder and CEO at Fiddler Labs, a startup focused on helping companies build trustworthy and understandable AI solutions. Prior to founding Fiddler, Krishna led engineering teams at Pinterest and Facebook.

Ray Summit has been postponed until the Fall. In the meantime, enjoy an amazing series of virtual conferences beginning in mid May on the theme “Scalable machine learning, scalable Python, for everyone”. Go to anyscale.com/events for details.

Our conversation included a range of topics, including:

  • Krishna’s background as an engineering manager at Facebook and Pinterest.
  • Why Krishna decided to start a company focused on explainability.
  • Guidelines for companies who want to begin working on incorporating model explainability into their data products.
  • The relationship between model explainability (transparency) and security (ML that can resist adversarial attacks).
