Situating “explainability”: Making sense of data-driven assemblages in organizational context

Type: Presentation
Author: Christine T. Wolf
Year of Publishing: 2019
Keywords:

The rise of data-driven technologies in recent years has sparked renewed attention to questions of technological sensemaking and in particular the explainability or interpretability of such systems (a growing technical subfield commonly called “Explainable AI” or “XAI”). These approaches tend to focus on the technology itself (often at the level of model or predictive output) and fail to consider the broader context of use and the situated nature of technological sensemaking.
