Interactive visualization is an effective means by which humans can obtain insights on the inner-workings of deep neural networks and steer these models in a user-driven manner. This talk will present some of my recent work along this line of research, including (1) SANVis, a visual analytic system for understanding self-attention networks in natural language processing, (2) RetainVis, another visual analytics system for interpretable and interactive time-series prediction using electronic medical records, and (3) AILA, an interactive document labeling interface via attention visualization and supervision. Afterwards, I will discuss recent research trends and opportunities in the areas of information visualization, visual analytics, and human-in-the-loop artificial intelligence.
