The aim of this full-day workshop is to provide a forum to share and learn about recent research on requirements for artificial agents’ explanations as well as the implementation of transparent, predictable and explainable robotic systems. Extended time for discussions will highlight and document promising approaches and encourage further work. A large part of this effort is to bring together a community of researchers, strengthen existing connections, and build new ones.
The invited talks by Rachid Alami, Joanna Bryson, Bradley Hayes, and Alessandra Sciutti will be mixed with lightning talk session that each end with extended discussions on the session theme. The late afternoon will be devoted to break-out sessions to discuss the next steps in research and development of explainable and transparent robotic systems.
