Paper on Interpretability Published

The paper "On cognitive preferences and the plausibility of rule-based models" has finally been published. In it, we discuss various aspects of interpretability, propose to distinguish between syntatic, epistemic, and pragmatic interpretability, and argue that complexity measures such as the size of a decision tree or a rule set only address the first of these dimensions. We also report on a set of crowd-sourcing experiments that support this view, and discuss results on human cognitive biases with respect to the interpretability of rule-based theories.

Best Paper Award @DBKDA 2018

Lisa Ehrlinger, Bernhard Werth, and Wolfram Wöß received a Best Paper Award for the publication “QuaIIe: A Data Quality Assessment Tool for Integrated Information Systems”, which was presented during DBKDA 2018, the Tenth International Conference on Advances in Databases, Knowledge, and Data Applications, held in Nice, France during May 20-24, 2018. The selection was based on the review of the original submission, the camera-ready version, and the presentation during the conference.
