System-Level Transparency of Machine Learning

Abstract

Specialized documentation techniques have been developed to communicate key facts about machine-learning (ML) systems and the datasets and models they rely on. Techniques such as Datasheets, FactSheets, and Model Cards began the journey towards model documentation that provides ML explainability and transparency. Our proposal, called System Cards, aims to increase the transparency of ML systems by providing stakeholders with an overview of different components of an ML system, how these components interact, and how different pieces of data and protected information are used by the system.
