Workshop

Between September 30 and October 2, 2019, we will host a workshop titled
“Issues in Explainable AI: Blackboxes, Recommendations, and Levels of Explanation”. The workshop will take place on our campus in Saarbrücken, Germany. Above all, our team is delighted to welcome renowned guest contributors from across the globe and diverse disciplines.

Our guest contributors will hold talks on their current research projects in relation to our workshop theme. We will also have extensive discussion sessions to understand what kinds of explanations there are, and to gain insight into questions such as whether regulation or development should come first.
