Workshop 6:
Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI)
Visual analysis and machine learning are two important techniques in most academic, industrial, business,and medical applications. Visual analysis including image and video processingsystemsis closely related to various fields, such as internet of things, automatic navigation, intelligent robots and smart healthcare, etc. Machine learning has obtained great success in vision, graphics, natural language processing, gaming, and controlling.
The workshop aims to bring together the leading researchers and developers from both academia and industry to discuss and present their latest research and innovations on the theory, algorithms, and system technologies that can substantially improve existing image processing and computer vision based on machine learning and artificial neural network. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on this subject, including new theoretical methods, innovative applicationsandsystem prototypes.

Machine learning, deep learning, image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, artificial neural network.
