*******2-nd WS on Explainable and Ethical AI – ICPR’ 2022,

                              ENDORSED BY IAPR********


***** to be held on August 21, 2022 in Montreal *******************************

We are witnessing the emergence of an “AI economy and society” where AI technologies are increasingly impacting many aspects of business as well as everyday life. We read with great interest about recent advances in AI medical diagnostic systems, self-driving cars, ability of AI technology to automate many aspects of business decisions like loan approvals, hiring, policing etc. However, AI systems may produce errors, can exhibit overt or subtle bias, may be sensitive to noise in the data, and often lack technical and judicial transparency and explainability. These shortcomings are raising many ethical and policy concerns not only in technical and academic communities, but also among policymakers and general public, and will inevitably impede wider adoption of AI in society.

The problems related to Ethical AI are complex and broad and encompass not only technical issues but also legal, political and ethical ones. One of the key components of Ethical AI systems is explainability or transparency, but other issues like detecting bias, ability to control the outcomes, ability to objectively audit AI systems for ethics are also critical for successful applications and adoption of AI in society. Consequently, explainable and Ethical AI are very current and popular topics in various communities. Our proposed workshop aims to address technical aspects of explainable and ethical AI in general, and include related applications and case studies with the aim to address this very important problems from a broad technical perspective.

The topics comprise but are not limited to:

·       Naturally explainable AI methods

·       Post-Hoc Explanation methods of Deep Neural Networks and Transformers

·       Technical issues in AI ethics including automated audits, detection of bias, ability to control AI systems to prevent harm and others

·       Methods to improve AI explainability in general, including algorithms and evaluation methods

·       User interface and visualization for achieving more explainable and ethical AI

·       Real world applications and case studies
