Silvie Spreeuwenberg has done a very good job at outlining why AI needs more thansparency. In this short and well written publication, the author uses non-technical and clear language. The arguments are well formulated and non-ambivalent in their meaning, without moralizing or politicizing. The book is directed at business owners and entrepreneurs. Although it could be viewed as the “AIX-Manifesto” it has none of the shortcomings; the logic and the deduction are far more precize that those prevalent in the manifestos that I have seen. – 13 January 2020: based on the kindle edition.

It started with a Lady: Ada Lovelace. And it continues with a Lady: Silvie. Good to see and observe this! We need more intelligent Ladies to drive AI forward! Great series, Silvie!– Linkedin
In some application fields such as insurance claims auditing, it is absolutely mandatory to be able to explain how a system came up with an edit (i.e. the result). The decision may need to be defended in court if it is legally challenged. I agree with the hybrid-system approach mentioned by the author of this article; it seems to me as the way to go to get to the next level in AI.- Linkedin
Thanks, Silvie, for this crisp and clear explanation. What I like in particular is the first point: ‘supports a well-defined decision-making task’. I’d like to emphasize the word “supports”.
