How can we make people smarter? How can we understand computers that appear to be smart themselves? We’ll discuss how data visualization, a broad and expressive medium, can play both of these roles. We’ll touch on some of the visual techniques for powerful exploratory data analysis that look at different kinds of rich data such as text and images. Through a series of examples we will then discuss how visualization can shed light on how AI works, and how using this lens can broaden participation in the field of AI.

Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg are Gordon McKay Professors of Computer Science at Harvard, where Fernanda is also Sally Starling Seaver Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. In addition, Viégas and Wattenberg are Principal Scientists at Google, where they co-founded the PAIR (People+AI Research) initiative. Their work in machine learning focuses on transparency and interpretability, as part of a broad agenda to improve human/AI interaction. They are well known for their contributions to social and collaborative visualization, and the systems they’ve created are used daily by millions of people. Viégas and Wattenberg are also known for visualization-based artwork, which has been exhibited in venues such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, London Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

The talk will also be streamed over Zoom:
