Ex­plai­ning Ex­plaina­bi­li­ty – the pod­cast on Ex­plaina­ble Ar­ti­fi­ci­al In­tel­li­gence

How does the act of explanation, done by humans, work – and how can it be applied to AI systems? These questions are being investigated by the Collaborative Research Center “Constructing Explainability” at the universities of Bielefeld and Paderborn.

In this podcast we bring together the different disciplines: Two researchers from different fields discuss a concept around Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) from their point of view. The discussion is moderated by Professor Britta Wrede, professor for Medical Assistance Systems at Bielefeld University and an expert on Explainable Artificial Intelligence.

Epi­so­des

In this first episode we enter the topic of explainability from the perspectives of computer science and linguistics.

The guests are the speakers of the Collaborative Research Center, Prof. Katharina Rohlfing, psycholinguist at Paderborn University and Prof. Philipp Cimiano, computer scientist at Bielefeld University. The insights they are giving are about the motivation that drives them, the research goals they are pursuing and the societal impacts of XAI.

What is the difference between explainability and explaining? How does the act of explanation, done by humans, work – and how can it be applied to AI systems? Why is it even of such great importance for XAI? Prof. Britta Wrede is discussing these and other questions again with Prof. Katharina Rohlfing, psycholinguist at Paderborn University and Prof. Philipp Cimiano, computer scientist at Bielefeld University.
