Explainable Artificial Intelligence 3 CreditsIn this course, we present an introduction to Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). We describe the challenges associated with the use of black-box models and how we can overcome such challenges using interpretable and explainable methods. Moreover, we study other aspects related to interacting with AI-based systems, for example, trust, acceptance, evaluation, and Fairness Accountability and Transparency-issues.
Course ContentsThis course gives an introduction to Explainable AI (XAI), providing an overview of relevant concepts such as interpretability, transparency and black-box machine learning methods. The course provides an overview of state-of-the-art methods for generating explanations, and touches upon issues related to decision-support, human interaction with AI/intelligent systems and their evaluation. In summary, the Explainable AI course covers the following topics:
- Definitions and concepts such as black-box models, transparency, interpretable machine learning and explanations.
- Decision-making and decision support, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and AI.
- Explainable AI.
- Methods for Explainable AI.
- Applications and examples.
- Trust and acceptance.
- Evaluation methods and metrics.
- Ethical, legal and social issues of explainable AI.
