Questions tagged [explainable-ai]

For questions related to explainable artificial intelligence (XAI), also known as interpretable AI, which refers to AI techniques that can be trusted and easily understood by humans, which are particularly relevant in areas like healthcare or self-driving cars. There are several concepts related to XAI, such as accountability, fairness, and transparency.
