[D] Counterfactual Explanations
I came across the paper of Wachter, Mittelstadt, et al, who propose Counterfactual Explanations as remedy against the opacity of ML decision-making (see e.g. https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.00399 or https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3278331).
I am a lawyer myself and cannot assess the technical feasibility of this approach. How would you, Ml experts, evaluate their idea? I am really looking forward to your thoughts and insights.
(If this was already subject to discussion elsewhere please kindly direct me to the post).
