    2. If you had a very small neural network, you might be able to understand it.
    3. You really need to have a loop where the machine and the human collaborate.
    4. It's often the nature of these machine-learning systems that they produce a lot of false alarms, so an intel analyst really needs extra help to understand why a recommendation was made.
    5. We haven't achieved the whole dream, which is where AI has a conversation with you, and it is able to explain.
    6. Even if somebody can give you a reasonable-sounding explanation [for his or her actions], it probably is incomplete, and the same could very well be true for AI.
