    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to conclude whether there is a difference in the effect on the cost of equity between companies involved in targeted poverty alleviation and companies that are not involved. Previous research indicates that increased transparency and sustainability reporting have a positive effect on the cost of equity and therefore this study aims to add research in this area.

  4. 4. Increasing Reproducibility Through Provenance, Transparency and Reusability in a Cloud-Native Application for Collaborative Machine Learning

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för datorteknik; Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för datorteknik

    Author : Adam Ekström Hagevall; Carl Wikström; [2021]
    Keywords : Machine Learning; MLOps; STACKn; Reproducibility; Replicability; Provenance; Transparency; Reusability; Kubernetes; Cloud-Native; Open Source; Software Engineering;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis paper was to develop new features in the cloud-native and open-source machine learning platform STACKn, aiming to strengthen the platform's support for conducting reproducible machine learning experiments through provenance, transparency and reusability. Adhering to the definition of reproducibility as the ability of independent researchers to exactly duplicate scientific results with the same material as in the original experiment, two concepts were explored as alternatives for this specific goal: 1) Increased support for standardized textual documentation of machine learning models and their corresponding datasets; and 2) Increased support for provenance to track the lineage of machine learning models by making code, data and metadata readily available and stored for future reference.
