User Study: Embedding Space Visualization

September 12, 2021

We are looking for domain experts in a variety of fields, such as natural language processing, computational biology, and computer vision, who are currently developing or analyzing embedding spaces in their work. If you participate, you will be given an embedding analysis tool and asked to think aloud as you investigate data specific to your domain of expertise. You are encouraged, but not required, to prepare your own dataset(s) to visualize during the study. The study session will last 1-2 hours, after which you may opt to use the tool independently and return within 7-10 days for a follow-up interview. Participants will be paid $20 per hour spent in sessions with the investigators. Participants must be at least 18 years old. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form, or email the researchers with any questions.

VIS 2021 Satellite in Pittsburgh

August 19, 2021

We are hosting an IEEE VIS 2021 Satellite Event at Carnegie Mellon University. VIS is the premier visualization conference. It usually happens every year in a different city around the world, but due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, it will be virtual this year. To foster the local visualization community, we are hosting an in-person event during the conference. We will be live-streaming the opening and closing sessions on October 26 and 29 from Gates Hillman Centers, GHC 4405. We will also provide space for people to meet and get to know other visualization researchers or enthusiasts.
