MLI for Time-Series Experiments

This section describes how to run MLI for time-series experiments.

There are two methods you can use for interpreting time-series models:

Notes:

  • MLI no longer runs on experiments from previous releases, but also does not require internet to run on current models.
  • MLI is not available for NLP experiments.

Limitations:

  • When the test set contains actuals, you will see the time series metric plot and the group metrics table. If there are no actuals, MLI will run, but you will see only the prediction value time series and a Shapley table.

Multi-Group Time Series MLI

This section describes how to run MLI on time series data for multiple groups.

  1. Click the Interpret this Model button on a completed time series experiment to launch Model Interpretation for that experiment. This page includes the following:
  • A Help panel describing how to read and use this page. Click the Hide Help Button to hide this text.
  • If a test set is provided and the test set includes actuals, then a panel will display showing a time series plot and the top and bottom group matrix tables based on the scorer that was used in the experiment. Note that this panel can be resized if necessary.
  • If a test set is not provided, then internal validation predictions will be used.
  • Download Logs button for retrieving logs that were generated when this interpration was built.
  • Show Summary button that provide details about the experiment settings that were used.
  • A Group Search entry field (scroll to bottom) for selecting the groups to view.
MLI for time series
  1. Scroll to the bottom of the panel and select a grouping in the Group Search field to view a graph of Actual vs. Predicted values for the group. The outputted graph can be downloaded to your local machine.

  1. Click on a prediction point in the plot (white line) to view Shapley values for that prediction point. The Shapley values plot can also be downloaded to your local machine.

  1. Click Add Panel to add a new MLI Time Series panel. This allows you to compare different groups in the same model and also provides the flexibility to do a “side-by-side” comparison between different models.

Single Time Series MLI

Time Series MLI can also be run when only one group is available.

  1. Click the Interpret this Model button on a completed time series experiment to launch Model Interpretation for that experiment. This page includes the following:
  • A Help panel describing how to read and use this page. Click the Hide Help Button to hide this text.
  • If a test set is provided and the test set includes actuals, then a panel will display showing a time series plot and the top and bottom group matrix tables based on the scorer that was used in the experiment. Note that this panel can be resized if necessary.
  • If a test set is not provided, then internal validation predictions will be used.
  • A Show Summary button that provides details about the experiment settings that were used.
  • A Group Search entry field for selecting the group to view. Note that for Single Time Series MLI, there will only be one option in this field.

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the panel and select an option in the Group Search field to view a graph of Actual vs. Predicted values for the group. (Note that for Single Time Series MLI, there will only be one option in this field.) The outputted graph can be downloaded to your local machine.
