With Prashan Madumal, David Aha and Rosina Weber, I am co-organizing the Workshop on Explainable Agency in Artificial Intelligence. The workshop is part of the AAAI 2021 Conference.
XAI has received substantial but disjoint attention in different sub areas of AI, including machine learning, planning, intelligent agents, and several others. There has been limited interaction among these subareas on XAI, and even less work has focused on promoting and sharing sound designs, methods, and measures for evaluating the effectiveness of explanations (generated by AI systems) in human subject studies. This has led to uneven development of XAI, and its evaluation, in different AI subareas. We aim to address this by encouraging a shared definition of Explainable Agency and by increasing awareness of work on XAI throughout the AI research community and in related disciplines (e.g., human factors, human-computer interaction, cognitive science).
We invite the submission of papers describing novel research contributions (6 pages plus references), surveys (up to 8 pages plus references) or demonstrations (4 plus references). The submissions must be in PDF format, written in English, and formatted according to the AAAI camera-ready style. All papers will be peer reviewed, single-blinded. Submitted papers will be assessed based on their novelty, technical quality, potential impact, insightfulness, depth, clarity, and reproducibility. All the papers are required to be submitted via Easychair.
