Machine vision systems become pervasive in our Society, from industrial to human-centered applications. Therefore, such intelligent vision systems, which automatically process visual inputs such as raw still images, live video feeds, etc., must be both efficient and ethical. In this talk, developed solutions and algorithms based on explainable artificial intelligence and transparent computer vision approaches are presented.
