Due to the growing integration of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in geophysical workflows such as structural and stratigraphic interpretation using seismic reflection data, quantitative seismic interpretation, and seismic processing, questions regarding the optimal input features for machine learning (ML) architectures, assess the uncertainty in the model outputs, and correlate the results with the geology persist. This talk explores the transformative potential of an explainable AI technique called Shapley additive explanations (SHAP) in demystifying the "black box" concept of ML models. Using a random forest architecture trained for seismic facies analysis, we study SHAP's ability to analyze input-to-output relationships to understand how the ML architecture uses a suite of input seismic attributes to perform the classification. Moreover, we extend SHAP's utility beyond traditional seismic analysis by investigating public perceptions of induced seismicity. This exploration of explainable AI to enhance the interpretability of ML architectures for different applications offers deeper insights into effectively integrating AI techniques in geoscience.
