Abstract

This work has two main goals, on the one side it explores the nature of explainability in the attempt to clarify the ambiguous use of this concept and how eXplainable AI (XAI) methods fit into this concept. On the other side, the work describes the legal framework which currently regulates explainability of automated decisions in the context of the European administration, showing to what extent a selection of famous XAI methods meets the requirements of such legal framework.
