ANITI'scientific seminars go on
Let's meet on september 16th From 3pm to 4pm with Rosina Weber for a seminar on XAI
The seminar will take place in IRIT, salle du conseil and on line.
|Title : XAI: Roadblocks, Trends, and Directions
|Abstract : (XAI) faces several roadblocks that prevent its advancement. This talk introduces and contextualizes roadblocks stemming from a lack of consensus on foundational term definitions, biased motivations, inconsistent evaluations, and dependencies on multiple disciplines. This talk also presents latest trends such as personalized XAI and re-orientation of XAI methods to improve performance.
These trends however steer away from resolving said roadblocks. These considerations lead to new directions in support of alleviating existing roadblocks toward promoting the resilience of the field.
