EMERGE partners from UNIPI are organizing the 4th Italian Workshop on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI.it 2023) during the 22nd International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIxIA 2023), to be held in Rome, Italy, on November 6th - 9th, 2023.
Artificial intelligence systems are increasingly playing an increasingly important role in our daily lives. As their importance in our everyday lives grows, it is fundamental that the internal mechanisms that guide these #algorithms are as clear as possible. It is not by chance that the recent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) emphasized the users' right to explanation when people face artificial intelligence-based technologies.
Unfortunately, the current research tends to go in the opposite direction, since most of the approaches try to maximise the effectiveness of the models (e.g., recommendation accuracy) at the expense of the explainability and the transparency.
The main research questions which arise from this scenario are straightforward: how can we deal with such a dichotomy between the need for effective adaptive systems and the right to transparency and interpretability?
Several research lines are triggered by this question: building transparent intelligent systems, analysing the impact of opaque algorithms on final users, studying the role of explanation strategies, investigating how to provide users with more control in the behaviour of intelligent systems. The workshop tries to address these research lines and aims to provide a forum for the Italian community to discuss problems, challenges and innovative approaches in the various subfields of AI.
The deadline for paper submission is September 8th, 2023, at the link below.
About AIxIA 2023
The 22nd International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIxIA 2023) is organized by AIxIA (Associazione Italiana per l’Intelligenza Artificiale) , which is a non-profit scientific society founded in 1988 and devoted to the promotion of Artificial Intelligence. The society aims to increase the public awareness of AI, encourage the teaching of it and promote research in the field.
