Provectories: Embedding-based Analysis of Interaction Provenance Data

IEEE Transaction on Visualisation and Computer Graphics (TVCG) Understanding user behavior patterns and visual analysis strategies is a long-standing challenge. Existing approaches rely largely on time-consuming manual processes such as interviews and the analysis of observational data. While it is technically possible to capture a history of user interactions and application states, it remains difficult […]

Survey on the Analysis of User Interactions and Visualization Provenance (EuroVis/Computer Graphics Forum)

EuroVis/Computer Graphics Forum 2020 There is fast-growing literature on provenance-related research, covering aspects such as its theoretical framework, use cases, and techniques for capturing, visualizing, and analyzing provenance data. As a result, there is an increasing need to identify and taxonomize the existing scholarship. Such an organization of the research landscape will provide a complete […]

TimeSets: Temporal sensemaking in intelligence analysis (IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A) 2020 TimeSets is a temporal data visualization technique designed to reveal insights into event sets, such as all the events linked to one person or organization. In this paper we describe two TimeSets-based visual analytics tools for intelligence analysis. In the first case, TimeSets is integrated with other visual […]

Putting the ā€œiā€ in interaction: Interactive interfaces personalized to individuals (IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (CG&A) 2020 Interactive data exploration and analysis is an inherently personal process. One’s background, experience, interests, cognitive style, personality, and other sociotechnical factors often shape such a process, as well as the provenance of exploring, analyzing, and interpreting data. This viewpoint posits both what personal information and how such personal […]

Provenance and logging for sense making (Dagstuhl Reports)

Dagstuhl Reports 2019 This the report for the Dagstuhl Seminar I co-organised. Sense making is one of the biggest challenges in data analysis faced by both the industry and the research community. It involves understanding the data and uncovering its model, generating a hypothesis, selecting analysis methods, creating novel solutions, designing evaluation, and also critical […]

An Approach to Human-Machine Teaming in Legal Investigations Using Anchored Narrative Visualisation and Machine Learning (International Workshop on AI and Intelligent Assistance for Legal Professionals in the Digital Workplace)

The First International Workshop on AI and Intelligent Assistance for Legal Professionals in the Digital Workplace (LegalAIIA 2019) During legal investigations, analysts typically create external representations of an investigated domain as resource for cognitive offloading, reflection and collaboration. For investigations involving very large numbers of documents as evidence, creating such representations can be slow and […]

Uncertainty of visualizations for SenseMaking in criminal intelligence analysis (EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization)

EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization (EuroRV3) 2018 Uncertainty in visualization is an inevitable issue for sensemaking in criminal intelligence. Accuracy and precision of adoptedvisualization techniques have got greater role in trustworthiness with the system while finding out insights from crime relateddataset. In this paper, we have presented a case study to […]

Analytic Provenance as Constructs of Behavioural Markers for Externalizing Thinking Processes in Criminal Intelligence Analysis (Community-Oriented Policing and Technological Innovations)

Chapter 10 of the book Community-Oriented Policing and Technological Innovations (2018) Studying how analysts use interaction in visualization systems is an important part of evaluating how well these interactions support analysis needs, like generating insights or performing tasks. Analytic Provenance commonly known as interaction histories contains information about the sequence of choices that analysts make […]

Analytic provenance for criminal intelligence analysis (Journal of Network and Information Security)

Chinese Journal of Network and Information Security (2018) In criminal intelligence domain where solution discovery is often serendipitous,it demands techniques to provide transparent evidences of top-down and bottom-up analytical processes of analysts while sifting through or transforming sourced data to provide plausible explanation of the fact.Management and tracing of such security sensitive analytical information flow […]
