Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As artificial intelligence (AI) systems are being deployed in more and more critical applications, there is an increasing need to understand how they make decisions and to ensure that they are trustworthy. Explainable AI (XAI) is a rapidly growing area of research that aims to make AI systems more transparent and interpretable, so that their decisions can be understood and trusted by human users.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the use of AI systems in various domains, such as healthcare, finance, autonomous systems, and many more. However, these AI systems are often based on complex and opaque models, such as deep neural networks, that are difficult for humans to interpret. This lack of transparency can make it difficult to understand why a particular decision was made, and it can also make it difficult to ensure that the system is making fair and unbiased decisions. To address these issues, researchers have started to develop methods for making AI systems more interpretable and transparent.

The field of XAI Is still in its ea”ly s’ages, and there is currently a lack of consensus on what exactly constitutes an explainable AI system. However, there are several different approaches that have been proposed to make AI systems more interpretable, including techniques for visualizing deep neural networks, methods for generating human-readable explanations of AI decisions, and approaches for evaluating the interpretability of AI models.

In addition to these technical approaches, there is also a growing body of research on the social and ethical implications of XAI, including studies on the trade-offs between model complexity and interpretability, and research on the integration of explainability methods with other AI tasks, such as fairness and robustness.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and trends in XAI, and will cover a wide range of topics related to the transparency and interpretability of AI systems. We invite submissions from researchers working in areas such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and other fields that are relevant to explainable AI.

The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for researchers to share their latest research findings and to promote further discussion and collaboration in this rapidly growing area of research.
