    Speaker: Xiang Anthony Chen, UCLA

    Talk Title: Catalyzing AI Advances with Human-Centered Interactive Systems

    Abstract: Despite the unprecedented advances in AI, there has always been a gap between how well an AI model performs and how such performance can serve humanity. In this seminar, I will describe my past work to close this gap. Specifically, I develop human-centered interactive systems that catalyze advances in AI to achieve three levels of objectives: aligning with human values, assimilating human intents, and augmenting human abilities. Further, I will discuss my ongoing and future research, focused on AI for scientific discovery, AI with Theory of Mind, and AI-mediated human communication.     This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium

    Biography: Xiang ‘Anthony' Chen is an Assistant Professor in UCLA's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. He received a Ph.D. in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Anthony's area of expertise is Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). His research employs human-centered design methods to build systems that catalyze advances in AI to better serve humanity, supported by NSF CAREER Award, ONR YIP Award, Google Research Scholar Award, Intel Rising Star Award, Hellman Fellowship, NSF CRII Award, and Adobe Ph.D. Fellowship. Anthony’s work has resulted in 55+ publications with three best paper awards and three honorable mentions in top-tier HCI conferences.
