When electricity was first invented, factory engineers rushed to replace steam engines with electric motors. This switch, however, made little impact on the factory's productivity due to the factories' layouts and workflows being optimized for steam power. It wasn't until thirty years later that a new generation of engineers reconfigured the layouts and workflows for electrical manufacturing, leading to a tripling of productivity. History repeats itself as we encounter a similar paradigm shift with the advent of AI. Instead of integrating AI into individual applications, my recent work explores how information spaces should be redesigned to harness AI's potential fully. In this talk, I will share some of the early work that we have been doing toward this direction. 

Haijun Xia is an Assistant Professor in the Cognitive Science, Design Lab, and Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego. He also directs the Creativity Lab. His research area is Human-Computer Interaction, where he investigates several fundamental aspects of human-computer interfaces, such as information representation, interaction modality, and intent recognition. His work has received Best Paper Awards or Honorable Mentions at ACM CHI, UIST, and IEEE VIS conferences. He received his Master's and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto, and his Bachelor degree from the Department of Computer Science of Tsinghua University.

This talk will also be streamed over Zoom:
