Explainable and Ethical AI: A Perspective on Argumentation and Logic Programming


Roberta Calegari, Andrea Omicini, Giovanni Sartor

In this paper we sketch a vision of explainability of intelligent systems as a logic approach suitable to be injected into and exploited by the system actors once integrated with sub-symbolic techniques.
In particular, we show how argumentation could be combined with different extensions of logic programming – namely, abduction, inductive logic programming, and probabilistic logic programming – to address the issues of explainable AI as well as some ethical concerns about AI.
