AI - finally explainable to humans

As of today it remains difficult to understand how an AI system reaches its decisions. Scientists at the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI) and the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) at TU Berlin have collaborated for many years to make AI explainable. In their new paper the researchers present Concept Relevance Propagation (CRP), a new method for explainable AI that can explain individual AI decisions as concepts understandable to humans.
