The right to an explanation of automated decisions is typically described in terms of ‘providing transparency’. This is thought to render AI intelligible by disclosing the algorithms and machine learning ‘responsible for’ its output. I argue against this way of framing the very question of explainable AI before providing an alternative.

Constantine Sandis is a philosopher working on philosophy of action, moral psychology, David Hume, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. He published among others A Companion to the Philosophy of Action (with Timothy O’Connor, Wiley-Blackwell, 2010), The Things We Do and Why We Do Them (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), Philosophy of Action: An Anthology (with Jonathan Dancy, Wiley-Blackwell, 2015), and Character and Causation: Hume’s Philosophy of Action, Routledge, 2019. He will soon publish his first book in French, Raisons et responsabilité: Essais de philosophie de l’action (Ithaque, 2020).
