Duties of care for explanation practices: Instructions for decision makers in AI-infused times

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talkScientific


Voices from multidisciplinary discourse warn how fundamental rights are harmed when we can’t explain AI-supported decisions. But identifications of the problem differ across disciplines, and so do proposed solutions. This talk introduces a path towards coherence, starting from an amended problem statement: many ‘algorithmic harms’ are exposed in environments where explanation was well regulated. What should that teach us?
