Use HiResCAM instead of Grad-CAM for faithful explanations of convolutional neural networks

It is shown that while HiResCAM’s explanations faithfully reflect the model, Grad-CAM often expands the attention to create bigger and smoother visualizations, which may aid in the development of trustworthy models for sensitive applications.

The role of artificial intelligence in the differential diagnosis of wheezing symptoms in children
