Explainability is a crucial aspect of models which ensures their reliable use by both engineers and end-users.However, explainability depends on the user and the model’s usage context, making it an important dimension for user personalization.In this article, we explore the personalization of opaque-box image classifiers using an interactive hyperparameter tuning approach, in which the user iteratively rates the quality of explanations for a selected set of query images.Using a multi-objective Bayesian optimization (MOBO) algorithm, we optimize for both, the classifier’s accuracy and the perceived explainability ratings.In our user study, we found Pareto-optimal parameters for each participant, that could significantly improve explainability ratings of queried images while minimally impacting classifier accuracy.Furthermore, this improved explainability with tuned hyperparameters generalized to held-out validation images, with the extent of generalization being dependent on the variance within the queried images, and the similarity between the query and validation images.This MOBO-based method has the potential to be used in general to jointly optimize any machine learning objective along with any human-centric objective.The Pareto front produced after the interactive hyperparameter tuning can be useful during deployment, allowing for desired tradeoffs between the objectives (if any) to be chosen by selecting the appropriate parameters.Additionally, user studies like ours can assess if commonly assumed trade-offs, such as accuracy versus explainability, exist in a given context.
