What Not!

No Sales Pitches. No Math lectures or deep tech dives. No shallow consulting or marketing talks.



Dr. Wojciech Samek

Head of the Department of Artificial Intelligence and the Explainable AI Group at Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), AI for Good

Wojciech Samek studied computer science at Humboldt University of Berlin, Heriot-Watt University and University of Edinburgh and received the Dr. rer. nat. degree with distinction (summa cum laude) from the Technical University of Berlin. After his PhD he founded the Machine Learning Group at Fraunhofer HHI, which he has directed until 2020. Dr. Samek is associated faculty at the Berlin Institute for the Foundation of Learning and Data (BIFOLD), the ELLIS Unit Berlin and the DFG Graduate School BIOQIC. He is co-editor of the Springer book “Explainable AI: Interpreting, Explaining and Visualizing Deep Learning” and has organized various sessions, workshops and tutorials on explainable AI, neural network compression, and federated learning.

Dr. Sven Schmeier

Chief Engineer and Associate Head of Language Technology Lab Berlin of DFKI

Project XAINES

In the XAINES project, the aim is not only to ensure explainability, but also to provide explanations (narratives). The central question is whether the AI can explain in one sentence why it acted the way it did or whether it has to explain it interactively to the user. To clarify this, one of the project focuses is the exploration of narrative and interactive narratives, which are particularly suitable for humans to assimilate knowledge in any form, in their application with AI systems. To obtain explanatory narratives, (speech) labeled sensor data streams and predictive models are used. Sensor information is combined with speech information, from which the AI system develops so-called scene understanding, which then generates explanations.
