The tool realizes 'something' close to a "supervised kmean". The
papers which describe parts of the process incorporated in
Ennéade are (up to now) indicated below.

The tool realizes the interpretation of the
scores of a naïve Bayesian predictor for classification
problems. The predictor to interpret
must be described by a dictionary produced by the France Telecom
scoring tool Khiops (version 7.5). The tool delivers two
aspects of the interpretation
A "Why" analysis: the importance or
contribution of each input variable for each instance for a
given value of the target class. Several
contribution indicators are available, among them indicators
of the state of the art.
A "How" analysis: it gives the actions to
realize in order to reinforce the predicted probability of a
given class. This analysis can be
very useful in commercial campaigns.
