Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) is used to describe an AI model, its expected impact and potential biases. It helps to characterize model accuracy, fairness, transparency and outcomes in AI-powered decision making. Explainable AI is crucial for an organization in building trust and confidence when putting AI models into production. AI explainability also helps an organization to adopt a responsible approach to AI development.

There are many advantages to understanding how an AI-enabled system has led to a specific output. Explainability can help developers ensure that the system is working as expected, it might be necessary to meet regulatory standards, or it might be important in allowing those affected by a decision to challenge or change that outcome.

An explainable AI (XAI) program aims to create a suite of machine learning techniques that:

  • Produce more explainable models, while maintaining a high level of learning performance (prediction accuracy); and
  • Enable human users to understand, appropriately trust and effectively manage the emerging generation of artificially intelligent partners.

An XAI program is focused on the development of multiple systems by addressing problems in two areas: (1) machine-learning problems to classify events of interest in heterogeneous, multimedia data; and (2) machine-learning problems to construct decision policies for autonomous systems to perform a variety of simulated missions.

We invite authors from both industry and academia to submit original research and review articles that cover the success stories of XAI in enhancing data transparency and reusability, specifically for real-life problems like conversational AI, healthcare, finance, and other industrial applications. All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by at least three experts in the field and evaluated with respect to relevance to the Special Issue, level of innovation, depth of contribution and quality of presentation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
