Enhancements

Python SDK 3.4.0​
Adds surrogate_explainability= flag to the pandas logger. Using the surrogate explainability approach, users have the option to pass a flag with a request to send data that would produce SHAP values. When the flag is enabled, a tree-based surrogate model is trained using the dataset's features and predictions. The surrogate model then generates SHAP values before sending the combined dataset to the Arize platform.
With surrogate explainability, users can now easily generate feature importance values without having to maintain an extra computation pipeline.
