It is beginning to dawn on me how weird I am with regard to the current majority of AI researchers. I came to AI out of HCI. There has always been an element of interacting with users or modeling humans in my work. I publish in AAAI, IJCAI, NAACL, and CHI.

So anyway... Hi 👋 welcome to my world fellow AI travelers. Glad to have you along for the ride. Humans exist. Humans are fun. Humans are hard.

Same. Came from behavioral economics. So yeah, humans are fun and also complicated.

So many people in the AI community behave like optimization algorithms rather than researchers. "Here's an objective function; go increase its value". I'm not complaining, though. This leaves more room for those of us who are interested in asking new, hard questions.

I never really see AI people in that context. Yes..you are so right. Researchers ask and answer their own hard questions. I am none of the above. This is an eye opener for me. a knowledge seeker.

We are lucky to be able to collaborate with excellent human factors researchers - "human-in-the-loop" is a key part of the work we're trying to do in ML & reasoning systems

100% we need more people coming from a variety of backgrounds to operate in a cross disciplinary fashion. Especially so in the case of That's the focus of the fellowship as well to have people coming from non traditional bg

We should talk about this at some point! I feel like , myself, and the lab in general have been thinking about similar things (data science/ML people who are sitting in these interdisciplinary spaces, me who came from comm to HCI and ML/AI)

👋😅 always seeking human focus in this data world! Increasingly hard to believe AI or ML industry has any space for it though

Silicon Valley is all about turning humans in to robots, and then monetizing. Or something.

If you're working in an obscure area no one cares for, then people will struggle to see utility in what you do. If recognition for its own sake is more important to you, you will have to work in trending recognizable areas. Have to be odd to feasibly subsist on curiosity alone

There is so much more to ML and AI than leaderboards on narrowly-scoped problems. So few can compete on that. If you aren’t best of the best you’ll not be recognized there either. And those who do will discover their algorithms don’t work in the real world.

Also important that the general public understand what’s at stake in . Need for good info/media/data literacy tools & education paramount for public dialogue

I was at the UK-Canada roundtable on AI Ethics about 10 days ago – some excellent work happening in Canada, very inspiring

There is more to “human centered” than ethics, though that is indeed important and I am involved in that sort of work.
