Mission. My research interests are centered around artificial intelligence (AI) and how we can make these AI systems socially acceptable. My focus is to improve the explainability (XAI) and interpretability of deep learning models. Inspiration for XAI solutions can come from cognitive science, since the exploration and consideration of human behavior is inevitable and possibly the best motivation for precisely this human-machine interaction (XIL). This not only offers a better understanding of machine learning models, but uses human capabilities to incorporate knowledge outside of the rigid range of purely data-driven approaches.
