1st January 2024. New use cases on Health :Brainguard, ECG(time series)

15th January 2024 – New reuse functionalities were created and released in the BT editor. Users can edit explanation strategies as they need and want. Recommendation of suitable explainers for substitution is based on explainer previously used and positively positively.

31/01/2024 – New functionalities on testing BTs were created and released in the BT editor (Automatic reuse). Users can check their strategies’ applicability for their use case and check the BT structure’s suitability.
