Álvaro Domínguez on Peter Lipton (2004)

Lipton, P. (2004). Inference to the best explanation (Contrastive Inference – Chapter 5)

The Argumentation Lab (ArgLab) organizes a reading group on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) and Inference to the Best Explanation (IBE). This reading group is part of the activities organized by the research group ANTIDOTE. The purpose of this reading group is to explore topics related, but not limited to, explanation in science and in language, methods of inquiry, and its application to artificial intelligence (explainability, interpretability, debugging, etc.). We will start reading classics in the literature on inference to the best explanation and move from there to more contemporary topics in AI and philosophy of science/language.

Álvaro Domínguez will be the rapporteur. You can read the Chapter here.

Sessions will take place on Wednesdays from 4 to 5:30pm (Lisbon time). Please write to if you are interested in taking part.
