Explainability of artificial intelligence methods has become a crucial issue, especially in the most regulated fields, such as health and finance. In this paper, we provide a global explainable AI method which is based on Lorenz decompositions, thus extending previous contributions based on variance decompositions. This allows the resulting Shapley-Lorenz decomposition to be more generally applicable, and provides a unifying variable importance criterion that combines predictive accuracy with explainability, using a normalised and easy to interpret metric.

Abstract

Explainability of artificial intelligence methods has become a crucial issue, especially in the most regulated fields, such as health and finance. In this paper, we provide a global explainable AI method which is based on Lorenz decompositions, thus extending previous contributions based on variance decompositions. This allows the resulting Shapley-Lorenz decomposition to be more generally applicable, and provides a unifying variable importance criterion that combines predictive accuracy with explainability, using a normalised and easy to interpret metric. The proposed decomposition is illustrated within the context of a real financial problem: the prediction of bitcoin prices.
