Natural Language Generation
- Current Research
I work on generating a query-to-question user interface to translate interactive visualization states during visual analysis. The goal is to make visualizations with complex combinations of coordinated multiple views more understandable. By providing query-to-question translation, we hope to increase usability and help users recall past queries and share results. The interface might help new users find out how a particular tool can be used for their analytic tasks; for professional users, it might facilitate and accelerate the analysis process.
