Project LUCERNA: solving the secrets of AI

In the fascinating world of artificial intelligence, where algorithms are intertwined with complexity, the LUCERNA project, an initiative driven by Luce Innovative Technologies and AIR Institute, emerges as a guiding light. Focusing on Research in Explainable Artificial Intelligence Methodologies (IAeX), as well as on post-hoc techniques of model fitting, interpretable surrogates and generation of model explanations, LUCERNA seeks not only to understand AI, but also to make it transparent and understandable.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has often been seen as an enigma, a set of algorithms operating in the shadows. LUCERNA aims to unravel this enigma, bringing AI into the domain of human understanding. The research focuses on two crucial areas:


Artificial Intelligence Explainable Methodologies (IAeX)

LUCERNA seeks not only to create advanced models, but also to deploy them in a way that makes their operation understandable to all. IAeX becomes an essential guide, exploring methods and approaches that allow the complexity of algorithms to be distilled into intuitive explanations. This approach is not only relevant for data experts, but also empowers those who may not have a deep understanding of AI.


Post-hoc Model Fitting Techniques and Interpretable Surrogates

At the heart of LUCERNA is the idea that explainability should not compromise efficiency. Post-hoc model fitting techniques and interpretable surrogates allow existing AI models to be modified to make them more understandable without sacrificing performance. This ensures that the interpretation of results is not a barrier to the adoption and effective application of AI.

The mystery behind the decisions made by AI models is dispelled by the generation of explanations. LUCERNA embarks on a mission to develop tools and approaches that provide clarity on the reasoning behind each model decision. From image classification to complex forecasting, explanation generation provides transparency and confidence in the AI decision-making process.

LUCERNA is not just a research project, it is an open door to a future where artificial intelligence is not only powerful, but also understandable. By demystifying the inherent complexity of AI, this project not only advances research, but also sets a standard for the ethical and efficient implementation of artificial intelligence in everyday life.
