Special Lecture

Designing Automated Assistants for Visual Data Exploration

Friday, November 5, 2021
12:10 pm to 2:00 pm

Doris Lee

Visual data exploration enables analysts to identify trends and patterns, generate and verify hypotheses, and detect outliers and anomalies. However, the overwhelming number of decisions required in visual data exploration presents a barrier to discovering useful, actionable insights from data.

In this dissertation talk, Dr. Doris Lee discusses how automated assistance via tooling aids visual data exploration. Lee developed four systems to survey the design space of visual exploration assistants across different analytical tasks and interface modalities. Findings from this dissertation contribute towards designing an intelligent visual exploration assistant that suggests helpful tailored feedback based on user’s analytical needs and seamlessly guides users towards data-driven insights.


This lecture will be conducted both online & in person. You are welcome to join us either in South Hall or via Zoom.

For in-person participants, face masks are required indoors at all times at UC Berkeley, regardless of vaccination status.
