CET801 Governance for AI Explainability

Course Provider

School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE)



Academic Unit



AI systems are black boxes whose behaviors are difficult to explain. However, to ensure auditability and build trust, we should establish governance frameworks that provide explanations for AI decisions. In this course, we will discuss how to develop such policies for AI governance and build trust in stakeholder relations.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence and AI Ethics
- FlexiMasters  in Artificial Intelligence and AI Ethics
