Upcoming RuleML Webinars
Since 2019 I organize the RuleML webinar (https://wiki.ruleml.org/index.php/RuleML_Webinar).
8 September 2020. Proceedings or RuleML+RR are now on-line. https://www.springer.com/978-3-030-57976-0
21 August 2020. Our paper Editable Machine Learning Models? A rule-based framework for user studies of explainability will soon appear in Journal of Advances in Data Analysis and Classification (Springer) Preprint: https://nb.vse.cz/~klit01/papers/RuleEditor.pdf
Paper presenting my student's master thesis Action Rules: Counterfactual Explanations in Python is the winner of the 14th Rule Challenge 2020 competition. Paper is freely available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2644/. Lukáš joins our department as a PhD student.
1 February 2020. Our paper Advances in machine learning for the behavioral sciences appears in a printed issue of American Behavioral Scientist. Preprint: https://arxiv.org/abs/1911.03249
27 Dec 2019. Paper "Associative Classification in R: arc, arulesCBA, and rCBA" featuring my arc package was published in the R Journal. This is a joint paper with Michael Hahsler (Southern Metodist University) and Ian Johnson (Google), authors of arulesCBA, and Jaroslav Kuchař (Czech Technical University), author of rCBA.
24 Dec 2019. Our paper "On Cognitive Preferences and the Interpretability of Rule-based Models." is on-line first in Machine Learning (Springer) - Open Access.
I serve as program co-chair of RuleML+RR 2020@DeclarativeAI conference in Oslo.
22 Sep 2019. Our paper "Tuning Hyperparameters of Classification Based on Associations (CBA)" was presented at ITAT 2019 in Donovaly
19 Sep 2019 Our paper PyIDS–Python Implementation of Interpretable Decision Sets Algorithm by Lakkaraju et al, 2016. received the best RuleML Challenge Award at RuleML+RR 2019 in Bolzano.
