The next leap into the future: Explaining the Unexplainable [AI] | Luca Longo | TEDxInnopolis

Artificial Intelligence has increasingly become part our lives, from conversational bots, autonomous machines, personalized medicine to predictive analytics and facial recognition systems. These AI-based technologies are often regarded as black-boxes and the lack of interpretability and explainability of their functioning, predictions and assessments hamper our ability to fully trust them. In this talk, Dr. Luca Longo, academic, scientist, public speaker and teaching hero, emphasizes this problem through real-world examples, and he introduces a new discipline aimed at tackling it, namely Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). This is a new paradigm that has started shaping the way we see and interact with machines. It will be revolutionary because it will finally empower human intelligence with artificial intelligence. Assistant Professor of the Technological University Dunlin, awarded the National Teaching Hero in Ireland in 2016, artificial intelligence researcher. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
