About this Research Topic
Artificial intelligence and related technologies have recently been used in a wide range of areas, namely automation, control, robotics, and computing. However, as the use of intelligent systems becomes more prevalent, users are increasingly concerned with issues such as understandability and trust, since most of the current machine learning algorithms are in the form of a black box and, therefore, unexplainable.
Explainable artificial intelligence strives to make results understandable and transparent in order to explain how and why a result was obtained. The concept of explainable AI is constructed around algorithms and methods which employ artificial intelligence in such a manner that the results of the solution can be understood by humans.
Fuzzy systems are essential methods in artificial intelligence that can be applied to solve complex real-world problems. In particular, the use of fuzzy rules can facilitate the implementation of explainable AI. This is because fuzzy systems are based on approximate reasoning under uncertainty, and this is similar to how humans think and make decisions.
This Research Topic aims to highlight the latest research in the field of explainable AI and, in particular, how fuzzy systems can be used to achieve this. Papers on both theory and applications are welcome. We solicit original Research and Review articles based on survey research in the context of the following domains of applications and methodologies of Explainable AI methodologies:
