Human-Centered Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Marine Autonomous Surface Vehicles

Erik Veitch, Ole Andreas Alsos
2021 Journal of Marine Science and Engineering  
Despite recent successes of technology-centered XAI for enhancing the explainability of AI techniques to expert users, these approaches do not necessarily carry over to non-expert end users.  ...  The examples show how current research activities point to novel ways of addressing XAI needs for distinct end user interactions and underpin the human-centered XAI approach.  ...  This work has demonstrated that as ASVs scale for widespread deployment, design practices are orienting towards end user interaction design.  ...

Jessy Ceha, Edith Law, Dana Kulić, Pierre-Yves Oudeyer, Didier Roy
2021 International Journal of Social Robotics  
We discuss the fine-grained robot functions and behaviours conceived by teachers, and how they address the current tensions -- providing suggestions for improving the design of social robots for learning  ...  Overall, the teachers responded positively to the idea of introducing a social robot as a technological tool for learning activities, envisioning differences in usage for teacher-robot and student-robot  ...  In contrast to other educational robots, for example those used as tools for teaching programming skills, social robots teach through social interaction [5] .  ...
