VISUALIZATION: A PETRI DISH FOR INTELLIGENCE AUGMENTATION
Arvind Satyanarayan, assistant professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, MIT
Arvind Satyanarayan’s research uses interactive data visualization as a petri dish to study questions in user interface toolkit design and human-computer interaction broadly. Systems he developed have won awards at premier academic venues and are used by the Wikipedia and the Jupyter/Python data science communities.
The Next in Science series allows early-career scientists whose creative, cross-disciplinary research is thematically linked to introduce their work to one another, to fellow scientists, and to nonspecialists from Harvard and the Greater Boston area.
