  • Recently, a number of techniques have been proposed to explain a machine learning (ML) model's prediction by attributing it to the corresponding input features. Popular among these are techniques that apply the Shapley value method from cooperative game theory. While existing papers focus on the axiomatic motivation of Shapley values, and efficient techniques for computing them, they do not justify the game formulations used. For instance, we find that the SHAP algorithm's formulation (Lundberg… CONTINUE READING
