Call for registration: “Explainable AI and Society” Lecture Series, TU Dortmund/online, winter semester 2023/24

Lecture Series “Explainable AI and Society”
The 4th installment of the lecture series “Explainable AI and Society” will take place during the winter semester 2023/2024, online and in person at TU Dortmund.
Modern AI can be used to drive cars, to decide on loans, or to detect cancer. Yet, the inner workings of many AI systems remain hidden – even to experts. Given the crucial role that AI systems play in modern society, this seems unacceptable. But how can we make complex, self-learning systems explainable? What kinds of explanations are we looking for when demanding that AI must be explainable? And which societal, ethical and legal desiderata can actually be satisfied via explainability?
The interdisciplinary, hybrid lecture series presents the latest research on these and related topics and invites exchange with researchers, students, and the interested public.
