Hi All, 

Perhaps a recent publication of mine, FABRICS: Emerging AI Readiness (https://vous.ai/FABRICS-Emerging-AI-Readiness-Comninos-Konzett-First-Edition-2018-LQ.pdf), which looks at algorithmic/systems transparency of AI and automated systems and the right to explanation may be of use.

Kind regards, 

Alex Comninos

I am transitioning to a new email address: hello at alex.africa
