This book focuses on new and emerging data mining solutions that offer a greater level of transparency than existing solutions.
Transparent data mining solutions with desirable properties (e.g. effective, fully automatic, scalable) are covered in the
book. Experimental findings of transparent solutions are tailored to different domain experts, and experimental metrics for
evaluating algorithmic transparency are presented. The book also discusses societal effects of black box vs. transparent approaches
to data mining, as well as real-world use cases for these approaches.As algorithms increasingly support different aspects
of modern life, a greater level of transparency is sorely needed, not least because discrimination and biases have to be avoided.
With contributions from domain experts, this book provides an overview of an emerging area of data mining that has profound
societal consequences, and provides the technical background to for readers to contribute to the field or to put existing
approaches to practical use.
