Ensuring the quality of modern methods of machine learning with regard to predictive quality, robustness, impartiality and interpretability is often a challenge in practical applications. Our research focuses on:
- Comprehensive generation and selection of features for complex learning procedures (e.g. for use in online scenarios and taking into account different uncertainty factors).
- Robust predictive and explanatory mechanisms, taking into account various fairness definitions.
- Techniques for quantifying and improving the quality of complex machine learning models and (training) data.
