Inspecting Black-Box EstimatorsΒΆ

eli5.explain_weights() and eli5.explain_prediction() support a lot of estimators and pipelines directly, but it is not possible to support everything explicitly. So eli5 provides a way to inspect ML pipelines as black boxes: Permutation Importance method allows to use eli5.explain_weights() with black-box estimators, while LIME allows to use eli5.explain_prediction().
