Building the model

We build a simple graph for the example

In [2]:
data_path = "res/shap/Data_6var_direct_indirect.csv"


learner = gum.BNLearner(data_path,template)
bn = learner.learnParameters(template.dag())
G X3 X3 Z Z X3->Z Y Y R R X0 X0 X0->Z X1 X1 X1->Y X1->Z X2 X2 X1->X2 Z->Y Z->R X2->Y X2->R

1-independence list (w.r.t. the class Y)

Given a model, it may be interesting to investigate the conditional independences of the class Y created by this very model.

In [3]:
# this function explores all the CI between 2 variables and computes the p-values w.r.t to a csv file.

  The ShapValue class implements the calculation of Shap values in Bayesian networks.

  The main implementation is based on Conditional Shap values [3]_, but the Interventional calculation method proposed in [2]_ is also present. In addition, a new causal method, based on [1]_, is implemented which is well suited for Bayesian networks.

The ShapValue class implements the calculation of Shap values in Bayesian networks. It is necessary to specify a target and to provide a Bayesian network whose parameters are known and will be used later in the different calculation methods.

gumshap = expl.ShapValues(bn, 'Y')

Compute Conditionnal in Bayesian Network

A dataset (as a pandas.dataframe) must be provided so that the Bayesian network can learn its parameters and then predict.

The method conditional computes the conditonal shap values using the Bayesian Networks. It returns 2 graphs and a dictionary. The first one shows the distribution of the shap values for each of the variables, the second one classifies the variables by their importance.

In [7]:
train = pd.read_csv(data_path).sample(frac=1.)
In [8]:
t_start = time.time()
resultat = gumshap.conditional(train, plot=True,plot_importance=True,percentage=False)
print(f'Run Time : {time.time()-t_start} sec')
Run Time : 13.398950099945068 sec
In [9]:
t_start = time.time()
resultat = gumshap.conditional(train, plot=False,plot_importance=True,percentage=False)
print(f'Run Time : {time.time()-t_start} sec')
Run Time : 13.607631206512451 sec
In [10]:
result = gumshap.conditional(train, plot=True,plot_importance=False,percentage=False)
#result is a Dict[str,float] of the different Shapley values for all nodes.

The result is returned as a dictionary, the keys are the names of the features and the associated value is the absolute value of the average of the calculated shap.

In [11]:
t_start = time.time()
resultat = gumshap.conditional(train, plot=False,plot_importance=False,percentage=False)
print(f'Run Time : {time.time()-t_start} sec')
Run Time : 15.84460711479187 sec
{'X3': 0.10465402104047901,
 'R': 0.05445633444152402,
 'X0': 0.06176712200000175,
 'X1': 0.2533375405370652,
 'Z': 0.5464180054433385,
 'X2': 0.3271606443752007}

Causal Shap Values

This method is similar to the previous one, except the formula of computation. It computes the causal shap value as described in the paper of Heskes Causal Shapley Values: Exploiting Causal Knowledge to Explain Individual Predictions of Complex Models .

In [12]:
t_start = time.time()
causal = gumshap.causal(train, plot=True, plot_importance=True, percentage=False)
print(f'Run Time : {time.time()-t_start} sec')
Run Time : 10.926829099655151 sec

As you can see, since \(R\) is not among the ‘causes’ of Y, its causal importance is null.

Marginal Shap Values

Similarly, one can also compute marginal Shap Value.

In [ ]:
t_start = time.time()
marginal = gumshap.marginal(train, sample_size=10, plot=True,plot_importance=True,percentage=False)
print(f'Run Time : {time.time()-t_start} sec')

As you can see, since \(R\), \(X0\) and \(X3\) are no in the Markov Blanket of \(Y\), their marginal importances are null.

Visualizing shapvalues directly on a BN

This method returns a coloured graph that makes it easier to understand which variable is important and where it is located in the graph.

In [ ]:
import pyAgrum.lib.notebook as gnb

g = gumshap.showShapValues(causal)

Visualizing information

Finally another view consists in showing the entropy on each node and the mutual informations on each arcs.
