Is there any canonical definition for Contrastive vs Counterfactual explanations?
In the literature, I keep reading different versions but I wonder if there are good definitions or illustrative examples. Attempts to get a hold of the two concepts to make indisputable and unambiguous definitions seem to slip between the fingers.
What I have found so far?
- T. Miller, Contrastive explanation: A structural-model approach (2018)
- S. Wachter, B. Mittelstadt, and C. Russell, Counterfactual explanations without opening the black box: Automated decisions and the GDPR (2017), Harv. JL & Tech., 31:841.
