An autonomous system consists of one or more physical or virtual agents that can perform tasks without continuous human guidance. In order to realise their promise, techniques for making such autonomous systems scrutable and transparent are therefore required. To address this issue the Scrutable Autonomous Systems (SAsSy) demo shows how argumentation and natural language can be combined to generate a human understandable dialog explaining the operation of an autonomous system. On the one hand argumentation theory is used to simulate human understandable reasoning mechanisms. On the other, natural language generation tools are used to translate logical statements into simple plain English. The idea is to generate a dialog that enables the user to understand and question the reasoning present in autonomous systems.
