We have defined an interdisciplinary program for training a new generation of researchers who will be ready to leverage the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based models and techniques even by non-expert users. The final goal is to make AI self-explaining and thus contribute to translating knowledge into products and services for economic and social
benefit, with the support of Explainable AI systems. Moreover, our focus is on the automatic generation of interactive explanations in natural language, the preferred modality among humans, with visualization as a complementary modality.
