Abstract [en]

Explainability of autonomous systems is important to supporting the development of appropriate levels of trust in the system, as well as supporting system predictability. Previous work has proposed an explanation mechanism for Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI) agents that uses folk psychological concepts, specifically beliefs, desires, and valuings. In this paper we evaluate this mechanism by conducting a survey. We consider a number of explanations, and assess to what extent they are considered believable, acceptable, and comprehensible, and which explanations are preferred. We also consider the relationship between trust in the specific autonomous system, and general trust in technology. We find that explanations that include valuings are particularly likely to be preferred by the study participants, whereas those explanations that include links are least likely to be preferred. We also found evidence that single-factor explanations, as used in some previous work, are too short. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
