Survey on the Analysis of User Interactions and Visualization Provenance

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 (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 “i” in interaction: Interactive interfaces personalized to individuals

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 […]

Co-chair for Machine Learning from User Interactions for Visualization and Analytics (MLUI 2020)

I am co-chairing the Machine Learning from User Interactions for Visualization and Analytics (MLUI) workshop this year. It is part of VisWeek 2020, which is the leading international conference on Visualisation (computer graphics, data visualisation, and visual analytics). The workshop is completely online this year, and you can find all the information on its website.

Guest editor for special issue on “Provenance analysis for sensemaking” ( IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications)

This special issue covers research that analyses provenance to better understand how users do sensemaking (information triage, foraging, reasoning, and hypothesis forming and testing). The detailed scope can be found in the Call for Paper. The special issue is now published as part of this issue of IEEE Computer Graphics and Application.

Provenance analysis for sensemaking

IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications 2020 This is the introduction I wrote (with the other co-editors) for the special issue on Provenance Analysis for Sensemaking in the IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications. This special issue reports the outcomes from the Dagstuhl Seminar I co-organised a year earlier on the same topic. https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8889811

Provenance and logging for sense making

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

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 (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 […]
