“Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger: Visualization for Human-Centered AI Tools”

Niklas Elmqvist

Villum Investigator & Professor of Computer Science, Aarhus University –

Abstract: Human-centered AI (HCAI), rather than replacing the human, puts the human user in the driver’s seat of so-called HCAI tools: interactive software tools that amplify, augment, empower, and enhance human performance using the new generation of AI models. In this talk, I will discuss how interactive visualization and visual analytics can be a key enabling technology for creating such HCAI tools in practice. Visualization has already been shown to be a fundamental component in explainable AI models, and coupling this with data-driven, semantic, and integrated interaction feedback loops will enable a human-centered model for integrating AI models in the loop with human users. I will present several examples of our past and current work on such HCAI tools, including for creative writing, visual and UX design, and computational notebooks. I will then draw parallels between these tools to suggest common themes on how interactive visualization and visual analytics can support the design of future HCAI tools.
