Interpretability is a fundamental property for the acceptance of machine learning models in highly regulated areas. Recently, deep neural networks gained the attention of the scientific community due to their high accuracy in vast classification problems. However, they are still seen as black-box models where it is hard to understand the reasons for the labels that they generate. This paper proposes a deep model with monotonic constraints that generates complementary explanations for its decisions both in terms of style and depth. Furthermore, an objective framework for the evaluation of the explanations is presented. Our method is tested on two biomedical datasets and demonstrates an improvement in relation to traditional models in terms of quality of the explanations generated. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2018.
