Expl(AI)n It to Me – Explainable AI and Information Systems Research

The field of Artificial Intelligence has seen dramatic progress over the last 15 years. Using machine learning methods, software systems that automatically learn and improve relationships using digitized experience, researchers and practitioners alike have developed practical applications that are indispensable and strongly facilitate people's everyday life (Jordan and Mitchell 2015). Pervasive examples include object recognition (e.g., Facebook's Moments and Intel Security's True Key), natural language processing (e.g., DeepL and Google Translate), recommender systems (e.g., recommendations by Netflix or iTunes), and digital assistants (e.g., Alexa and Siri).
