Object Knowledge: Researching Objects in the Museum Experience / Elizabeth Wood and Kiersten F. Latham / Reconstruction 9.1 (2009)
Material Paradigm: recognition of the physical properties, the functions and uses, the extrinsic qualities that an object or artifact possesses. The material paradigm lends itself to more impartial analysis, but clearly comes with its own set of interpretive devices.

Cultural Paradigm: demonstration of the object within a contextual field, meaning conferred on an object by nature of group or social use, meaning endowed by the viewer and the maker from a broadly shared or communal perspective

Personal Paradigm: marked by personal significance, evidence of a personal experience or relationship, definition of the self through biographical meanings or associations, containers of identity and personal narratives.

[1802.07810] Manipulating and Measuring Model Interpretability
Despite a growing literature on creating interpretable machine learning methods, there have been few experimental studies of their effects on end users. We present a series of large-scale, randomized, pre-registered experiments in which participants were shown functionally identical models that varied only in two factors thought to influence interpretability: the number of input features and the model transparency (clear or black-box). Participants who were shown a clear model with a small number of features were better able to simulate the model's predictions. However, contrary to what one might expect when manipulating interpretability, we found no significant difference in multiple measures of trust across conditions. Even more surprisingly, increased transparency hampered people's ability to detect when a model has made a sizeable mistake. These findings emphasize the importance of studying how models are presented to people and empirically verifying that interpretable models achieve their intended effects on end users.

Why there's no such thing as non-anachronistic interpretation, and it's a good thing too: reflections occasioned by Wesley Hill's <i>Paul and the Trinity</i>
Fifth, the most important reason why historical-critical reading is essentially anachronistic is the way that it uses—quite explicitly and without apology—resources outside the text, resources foreign to the text's original audience, as a means of interpreting the text. Examples are obvious: monographs and articles, concepts created long after the text's composition, archeological findings, data regarding life and neighboring cultures prior to and contemporaneous with the text's original setting. Historical-critical exegesis often proposes readings of ancient religious texts (say, Genesis 1) that would have been impossible in the original context, because no one at the time had, or could have had, the kind of comprehensive knowledge about their own time and place that we have since amassed. (It is worth noting that this exegetical procedure is not different in kind than reading Genesis 1 in light of the doctrine of creation ex nihilo, or scientific theories about the origins of the universe.) In a manner of speaking, the best historical-critical interpretations are self-consciously maximalist in just this way: they are so exhaustive in searching out every possible detail, contour, allusion, and influence that such an interpretation in the text's original setting would have been unthinkable—indeed, no such interpretation would have been possible until now, this very moment in time. Undertaken in that sort of self-conscious way, anachronism would be welcomed and readily admitted as the very occasion and goal of historical reading.

[1812.03253] Counterfactuals uncover the modular structure of deep generative models
Deep generative models such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and Variational Auto-Encoders (VAEs) are important tools to capture and investigate the properties of complex empirical data. However, the complexity of their inner elements makes their functioning challenging to assess and modify. In this respect, these architectures behave as black box models. In order to better understand the function of such networks, we analyze their modularity based on the counterfactual manipulation of their internal variables. Experiments with face images support that modularity between groups of channels is achieved to some degree within convolutional layers of vanilla VAE and GAN generators. This helps understand the functional organization of these systems and allows designing meaningful transformations of the generated images without further training.

HDC LIBRARY - Tilden's Tips
Provoke: attention, curiosity and interest.
Relate: to the everyday life of your visitors.
Reveal: the main concept or theme through some creative or unusual viewpoint.
Address the Whole: make sure your program relates to your main Project THEME.
Message unity: use the correct supporting elements in your program to illustrate your theme or main concept.

Heritage interpretation - Wikipedia ("Tilden's principles" of interpretation)
Any interpretation that does not somehow relate what is being displayed or described to something within the personality or experience of the visitor will be sterile.
Information, as such, is not Interpretation. Interpretation is revelation based upon information. But they are entirely different things. However all interpretation includes information.
Interpretation is an art, which combines many arts, whether the materials presented are scientific, historical or architectural. Any art is in some degree teachable.
The chief aim of Interpretation is not instruction, but provocation.
Interpretation should aim to present a whole rather than a part, and must address itself to the whole man rather than any phase.
Interpretation addressed to children (say up to the age of twelve) should not be a dilution of the presentation to adults, but should follow a fundamentally different approach. To be at its best it will require a separate program.
