Artificial intelligence is everywhere – it selects the next video on YouTube and your route on Google Maps. But soon, AI will make decisions that significantly impact your life – diagnosing illnesses, performing surgery, and driving your kids’ school bus. The stakes are high. Bradley Hayes argues that we can only trust AI if we understand how it makes decisions and why. We need explainable AI. Bradley Hayes directs the Collaborative AI and Robotics Research Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he is an Assistant Professor. As CTO of Circadence Corporation, he develops revolutionary educational programming to expand the cybersecurity workforce. He completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Yale University’s Social Robotics Lab and was a postdoctoral associate in MIT’s Interactive Robotics Group. Currently, he’s developing novel explainable AI techniques for safe human-robot collaboration. He will never say no to sushi.
