Assess the appropriate system heuristics (eg. ease of use), document all factors that influence the algorithmic decisions, and use them as a design tool to make them visible, or transparent, to users who use or are affected by the ML systems.


To (a) increase trust between the end user and the model; (b) increase end-user control; (c) improve acceptance rate of tool; (d) promote user learning with complex data; and (e) enable oversight by developers.
