"Explanations for AI: Computable or Not?" A workshop for WebSci'20

This workshop (hosted by the WebSci'20 conference) focused on socially-sensitive decisions made or assisted by AI systems which often involve more complex (e.g. machine learning) and opaque forms (also referred to as black-box algorithms) of underlying decision-making processes. The aim was to stimulate a lively debate on whether explanations for AI are computable or not by bringing together researchers, practitioners and representatives of AI (or AI-assisted) decision-making systems.
