Day 1 Discussion

verification diagrams for severe weather

On day 1, we learned about the Severe prediction problem, became more familiar with the data, trained machine learning models for the problem, and performed some initial evaluations, and started investigating XAI.

Please have one of your team members reply in the comments to to each of these questions after discussing them with the team.

See the Jupyter notebooks for this topic. 

Discussion prompts

  1. The lectures today and introduction to the Trust-a-thon both emphasized the importance of thinking about trust and the end user while developing AI. In this reflection, describe how your group thinks about both the trustworthiness of AI and how the end user fits into the AI development process. Then discuss how this thinking came into play for your first day of work on the Trust-a-thon: How did you integrate your user and/or their needs today? How would the day’s work have gone if you didn’t have an end user or had been assigned a different one? 
  2. Finally, the lectures also covered interdisciplinary collaboration, with this in mind take some time to think about how you worked together as a team: What went well and what could have been better? Did you integrate all team members? How will you keep doing things well the rest of the week and what is your plan for improving the areas that could have gone better?
