Topic:

XAI - The story so far

Abstract: The term XAI refers to a set of tools for explaining AI systems of any kind, beyond Machine Learning. Even though these tools aim at addressing explanation in the broader sense, they are not designed for all users, tasks,  contexts and applications. This presentation will describe progress to date on XAI by reviewing its approaches, motivation, best practices, industrial applications, and limitations.
