IntCDC Constructive Conversations / Jian Chen
July 3 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
We are very honored to welcome Jian Chen – tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University – on Monday, July 3, 2023 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. in our upcoming Constructive Conversations event.
Jian Chen will give a lecture on “Interactive Visual Computing for Knowledge Discovery in Science, Engineering, and Biology”.
Title: Interactive Visual Computing for Knowledge Discovery in Science, Engineering, and Biology

Imagine computer displays become a space to augment human thinking. Essential human activities such as seeing, gesturing, and exploring can couple with powerful computational solutions using natural interfaces and accurate visualizations. In this talk, I will present my team’s research effort to quantify visualization techniques of all kinds. Our ongoing work includes research in:
(1) perceptually accurate visualization – borrowing concepts from vision science to study how to depict spatially complex quantum-physics simulations and brain-imaging datasets and how visualization encoding choices alter viewer’s behaviors;
(2) using space metaphors to develop new computing and interactive capabilities for immersive modeling and bat-flight motion analysis; and extending exploratory metaphors to biological pathways to make possible integrated analysis of multifaceted datasets;
(3) automatic indexing and querying of visualization techniques via document-domain analysis.
During the talk, I will point to a number of other projects being carried out by my team. I will close with some thoughts on the use of human visual intelligence to instruct artificial intelligence and venture that a science of visualization now has the potential to be developed in full, and that its success will be crucial in understanding data-to-knowledge techniques related to use-inspired Translational Data Analytics.
Jian Chen is a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University, where she leads the Interactive Visual Computing Lab. She maintains general research interests in the design and evaluation of visualizations (encoding of spatially complex brain imaging, integrating spatial and non-spatial data, and perceptually accurate visualization) and interaction (exploring large biological pathways, immersive modeling).
Her work is funded by NSF, NIST, and DoD. She is also a former university innovation fellow and a co-chair of the first international workshop on the emerging field of Immersive Analytics at IEEE VR. Outside of computer science venues, Chen publishes work in applying visualizations to brain science. Outside of research and teaching, she enjoys serving as an area paper chair for IEEE VIS 2021, 2022, a voting member of IEEE Visualization academy, IEEE VR steering committee, and IEEE VGTC vice chair for conferences to help grow our community.
