The Data Exchange Podcast: Krishna Gade on transparency and explainability in machine learning.
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.
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).
