Is it possible to tame powerful AI systems even when we struggle to determine the ground truth ourselves? In this talk, I will cover two example NLP tasks 1. automatically searching for goal-relevant patterns in large text collections and explaining them to humans in natural language 2. labeling complex SQL programs using non-programmers with the aid of our AI system and achieving accuracy on par with database experts. In both cases, we build tools that help humans scrutinize the AI's behavior with high effectiveness but low effort, bringing new insights that human experts have not anticipated.
