The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an EU data privacy regulation is due to take effect 2017 and it will impact companies handling data of EU citizens significantly. The law will effectively create a “right to explanation”, which will allow citizens to demand the reasoning behind an algorithmic decision made about them. Have you thought about how this may impact your organization? Are you ready to explain the decisions that have been made by your machine learning systems? If the answer is no, you are not alone. The research on explainable AI, which loosely describes methods to solicit a reasoning from AI applications, is still in its infancy but slowly growing.
Our Master thesis project will consist of two parts. The first part entails getting an overview over the employed methods of understanding AI decision making and an analysis of the particular use of AI applications in your organization (September 2017 until January 2018). The second part will be the implementation of the result of our analysis and a tailor made solution to your particular situation followed by extensive testing on example cases (February 2018 until May 2018).
