报告题目：New Avenues of Explainable Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics: A Perspective of Granular Computing
内容简介：Artificial Intelligence (including explainable AI, XAI, for brief) and data analytics have positioned themselves nowadays at the center of advanced pursuits of human-centric architectures, intelligent systems, advanced control, and classification.
In this presentation, we highlight and characterize the key features of these areas and advocate that they share some commonalities in the sense that their processing involves intensive use of information granules either in realizing processing or building up user-system interfaces.
The presentation is self-contained. Following a concise presentation of the underlying concepts of XAI and data analytics along with their applications, we discuss the key concepts of Granular Computing, elaborate on the formal fundamentals contributing to its processing and knowledge representation, and contrast different models of information granules (including sets, intervals, fuzzy sets, rough sets and probabilistic information granules).
