EXplainable and TRAnsparent AI and Multi-Agent Systems: Fourth International Workshop

Auckland, New Zealand, 09/05/2022 – 10/05/2022
hosted by AAMAS 2022

The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers interested in developing an explainable agency for goal-oriented agents and robots supported by machine learning mechanisms. In particular, participants are invited to submit papers addressing whichever phase of explainability (e.g., generation, communication, and reception) fostering transparency in Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) and robots. Compliance with such requirements is becoming necessary in most systems where agent-oriented approaches are increasingly employed. 

Therefore, the purpose of this fourth “International workshop on Explainable Intelligence in fourth Agent and Multi-Agent Systems” (EXTRAAMAS) is five-fold:
(i) to strengthen the common ground for the study and development of explainable and understandable autonomous agents, robots, and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS),
(ii) to explore how agent explainability and machine learning interpretability can be combined to achieve systems capable of both perceptual data-driven and cognitive goal-driven explainability
(iii) to investigate the potential of agent-based systems in for personalized user-aware explainable AI,
(iv) to assess the impact of transparent and explained solutions on the user/agents behaviors,
(v) to discuss motivating examples and concrete applications in which the lack of explainability leads to problems, which would be resolved by explainability,
(vi) to assess and discuss the first demonstrators and proof of concepts paving the way for the next generation systems,
(vii) to explore the emerging interactions and synergies between XAI and law
