Academic Speaker - Cristina Conati

2017 Radical Research Summit Who are my users? The quest of user-adaptive interaction, applied to information visualization.

Interactive systems are becoming increasingly ubiquitous and intended to support a large variety of users in a growing range of tasks. However, designing interactive systems that satisfy the needs of highly heterogeneous user groups is challenging. Research in User-Adaptive Interaction (UAI) tackles this challenge by leveraging Artificial Intelligence techniques to devise interactive systems that capture in real-time relevant user’s features and personalize the interaction accordingly.

In this talk, I will present a new thread of research in UAI: User-Adaptive Visualizations. I will discuss initial results on which individual differences can impact visualization processing, how these and other relevant interaction states can be captured using eye-tracking, and how to provide personalized support that can improve the user's experience with a visualization.

Dr. Conati is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. She received a M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Milan, as well as a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems at the University of Pittsburgh.

Conati’s research goal is to integrate research in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Cognitive Science to create intelligent interactive systems that can dynamically adapt to the needs of individual users. Her areas of interest include User-Adaptive Interaction, User Modeling, Affective Computing, Intelligent Virtual Agents, and Intelligent Tutoring Systems.

She has over 100 peer-reviewed publications in these fields, and her research has received awards from a variety of venues, including UMUAI, the Journal of User Modeling and User Adapted Interaction (2002), the International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces ( IUI 2007), the International Conference of User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization (UMAP 2013, 2014), TiiS, ACM Transactions on Intelligent Interactive Systems (2014), and the International Conference on Intelligent Virtual Agents (IVA 2016).
