The 2nd World Conference on eXplainable Artificial Intelligence
Valletta, Malta, 17/07/2024–19/07/2024

Artificial intelligence has seen a significant shift in focus towards designing and developing intelligent systems that are interpretable and explainable. This is due to the complexity of the models, built from data, and the legal requirements imposed by various national and international parliaments. This has echoed both in the research literature and the press, attracting scholars worldwide and a lay audience. An emerging field with AI is eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (xAI), devoted to producing intelligent systems that allow humans to understand their inferences, assessments, predictions, recommendations and decisions. Initially devoted to designing post-hoc methods for explainability, eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (xAI) is rapidly expanding its boundaries to neuro-symbolic methods for producing self-interpretable models. Research has also shifted the focus on the structure of explanations and human-centred Artificial Intelligence since the ultimate users of interactive technologies are humans.

The World Conference on Explainable Artificial Intelligence is an annual event that aims to bring together researchers, academics, and professionals, promoting the sharing and discussion of knowledge, new perspectives, experiences, and innovations in the field of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (xAI). This event is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, bringing together academics and scholars of different disciplines, including Computer Science, Psychology, Philosophy, Law and Social Science, to mention a few, and industry practitioners interested in the practical, social and ethical aspects of the explanation of the models emerging from the discipline of Artificial intelligence (AI).
