Emily Sullivan: Explainable AI with a Purpose 

Abstract

Explaining the decisions of AI and decision support systems is necessary to facilitate meaningful human and computer interaction. The GDPR also gives us the “right to explanation” when an AI system makes an impactful decision. In this talk, I argue why we first need to identify what the purpose of these explanations are (or could be) in order to know whether we have provided explanations that fulfill our right to explanation and meaningful human and computer interaction.  

 

Would like to join? Send us an email and we will forward the meeting details (aitech  <> tudelft.nl).
