Survival analysis models are used primarily in medicine and churn analysis. Due to many applications, we are witnessing a fast development of a wide range of black-box survival models. Their lack of interpretability makes them unusable for analyzes that require an understanding of the model behavior.
An R package survxai is a tool for creating explanations of survival models. For both, complex and simple survival models. It also enables to compare them. Currently, four explanation methods are implemented. We can divide them into 2 groups: local and global.

surxvai package see paper survxai: an R package for structure-agnostic explanations of survival models in The Journal of Open Source Software.
