Hello! my name is Yongsu Ahn. I’m a 5rd-year PhD Student in School of Computing and Information at University of Pittsburgh. I’m luckily advised by Dr. Yu-Ru Lin at PICSO Lab.
My research interest lies at the intersection of Visual analytics, Fair and Explainable AI, and Interactive machine learning. I’m studying how AI-based tools will better assist the important decision makings and information use in our society. For the heterogenous population users including data practioners, domain experts and lay users, I pursue AI for everyone to develop and promote human-centered AI that is fair, interpretable, and responsible as a viable tool.
