Quod erat demonstrandum? - Towards a typology of the concept of explanation for the design of explainable AI

  • We propose a framework for defining different types of explanations of AI systems.
  • We contextualize current XAI discourses within the proposed framework.
  • We highlight two broad perspectives for defining quality criteria for explainability.
  • We discuss the relevance of our framework in light of current and upcoming AI regulation.
