** Mission Statement **


CEx addresses fundamental questions for the nature of "comprehensibility"
and "explanation" in an AI and ML context from a theoretical and an applied
perspective. Research into philosophical approximations to what an
explanation in AI and ML is (or can be) or how the comprehensibility of an
intelligent system can formally be defined will be presented next to work
addressing practical questions of how to assess a systems comprehensibility
from a psychological perspective, or how to design and build better
explainable AI and ML systems.
