Evaluate with model insights

Model insights help to interpret, explain, and validate what drives a model’s predictions. Using these tools can help to assess what to do in your next experiment. Available insights are dependent on experiment type, but may include the insights listed in the predictive modeling insights table below. To see a model's insights, click on the model in the left-pane Leaderboard. Note that different insights are available for time-aware experiments.

Available insights

Insight Description Problem type Sliced insights?
Blueprint Provides a graphical representation of data preprocessing and parameter settings. All
Coefficients Provides a visual indicator of the relative effects of the 30 most important variables. All; linear models only
Compliance documentation Generates individualized documentation to provide comprehensive guidance on what constitutes effective model risk management.
Confusion matrix Compares actual with predicted values in multiclass classification problems to identify class mislabeling. Classification, time-aware

Leaderboard views

There are two "flavors" of Leaderboard available.

  • This page describes the insights available from the Experiment tab, which helps to understand and evaluate models from a single experiment.
  • See also the Comparison tab page, which allows you to compare up to three models of the same type (for example, binary or regression) from any number of experiments within a single Use Case. Access the comparison tool from the tab or the dropdown on the experiment name in the breadcrumbs.
