Subjects treated at the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Explainable artificial intelligence techniques and their use as tools

  • Text classification of sustainable development goals using natural language processing

  • User annotation quality evaluation toolbox

  • Knowledge distillation for context-aware large-scale surveillance in smart-cities

  • Semi-supervised image classification using Deep Learning models

  • Knowledge distillation for context-aware large-scale surveillance in smart-cities

  • Active learning framework for Additive Manufacturing labeling

  • On-the-fly Domain Adaptation

  • Temperature field prediction in additive manufacturing process with an evolving domain

  • Clustering of energy consumption profiles in residential buildings

  • Bias Detection on Image or Text Data and their Mitigation on Models

  • Trustworthy optimization of neighbor embedding algorithms: towards explainability by design in exploratory data visualization
