Abstract / Description of output

Machine learning (ML) applications have automated numerous real-life tasks,
improving both private and public life. However, the black-box nature of many
state-of-the-art models poses the challenge of model verification; how can one
be sure that the algorithm bases its decisions on the proper criteria, or that it
does not discriminate against certain minority groups? In this paper we propose
a way to generate diverse counterfactual explanations from multilinear models,
a broad class which includes Random Forests, as well as Bayesian Networks.
