Artificial intelligence is ubiquitous in computer vision applications - from self-driving cars to retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and beyond. How do you know your computer vision AI model is working as advertised? Ted Way covers various ways that AI models can be fooled, such as by adding stickers to a stop sign. He focuses on using techniques to probe how a vision AI model makes a decision. Finally, Way shows how the LIME (local interpretable model-agnostic explanations) technique explains what an AI model is doing when it's looking at pictures of wolves and huskies, for example.
