Working out what AI is thinking and why

“It should always be possible to find out why an AI made an autonomous decision,” says Winfield, referring to it as “the principle of transparency”,

I'm not sure that this is possible with some aspects of AI/ML, since the algorithm is honed by the AI/ML itself and may not be transparent/apparent to its developers at all even if logged in a black box log.

I recall reading something similar recently in relation to this - may have been to do with Machine Translation where the AI/ML was able to translate directly between 2 languages it had not been specifically trained on, via triangulation.
