Explaining Arguments at the Dutch National Police

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


As AI systems are increasingly applied in real-life situations, it is essential that such systems can give explanations that provide insight into the underlying decision models and techniques. Thus, users can understand, trust and validate the system, and experts can verify that the system works as intended. At the Dutch National Police several applications based on computational argumentation are in use, with police analysts and Dutch citizens as possible users. In this paper we show how a basic framework of explanations aimed at explaining argumentation-based conclusions can be applied to these applications at the police.
