Explainable Artificial Intelligence
With the proliferation of AI, the need to be able to judge correctness, fairness, and transparency is paramount. Drawing together an interdisciplinary team of experts, this project aims to build explainable AI from these principles.
Developing human-centred explanations for decisions made using AI
Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used in high-stakes decision-making. This project focuses on how systems using AI can be designed to enable subjects to contest decisions that impact them. Henrietta Lyons, PhD candidate, School of Computing and Information Systems
