AI is now being used to augment and replace human decision-makers of all kinds: an HR representative screening a job applicant, a judge assessing a prisoner’s bail request, or an immigration agent issuing a visa, for example. Concerns about fairness, transparency, and safety has led to legislation demanding that decision-making AI be explainable, both to users and those affected by algorithmic decisions. This has in turn led to a surge in interest in the sub-field of machine learning known as explainability.
