Ep. 02: Another paradox: this time, explainability.


In this episode, we dive into the paradox of autonomy. Some of the topics we explore include:

  • Why are there so many paradoxical observations in AI?

  • What is the autonomy paradox?

  • Is there any way that giving up more information can be autonomy-enhancing?

  • What are principal reason and counter-factual explanations?

  • How can we deal with the autonomy paradox through AI UX design?
