What counts as explanation in social interaction?

Horizon Co-Investigator and Associate Professor, Stuart Reeves at the School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham co-authors a new paper titled ‘What counts as explanation in social interaction?’

“This paper will use Conversation Analysis to examine episodes of Human-Artificial Intelligence (AI) interactions, from a wide range of everyday interactional settings, and involving different technologies, user groups and task orientations. Rather than attempting to establish a systematic or generalisable metric for explainability across interactional settings, the aim here is to encourage an extension of – and critical reflections on – our technical conceptualisation of explanation in X-AI.”
