Hi, I’m Furui Cheng

I am a Ph.D. candidate from HKUST VisLab, advised by Prof. Huamin Qu. My research interest lies in the field of Human-Center AI with data visualization. I design and develop Interactive Visualization Systems to support users with no Machine Learning (ML) background in understanding and exploring ML models. I also focus on clinical scenarios and design visualization tools to support Human-AI-Collaborated decision-making.

I have worked with amazing researchers, developers, and designers from MIT, Bosch Research, and the Children’s Hospital of Zhejiang University.

Before the Ph.D. study, I obtained my B.Eng. Degree in Computer Science and Technology from Beihang University in 2018.

Selected Projects

VBridge: Support Clinicial Decision-Making with Explainable Machine Learning

VBridge: Support Clinicial Decision-Making with Explainable Machine Learning

VBridge incorporates ML explanations into clinicians' decision-making workflow. Enriched interactions proposed in the system connect the dots between ML features and data to explain healthcare models.

DECE: Explore ML Model with Counterfactual Explanations

DECE: Explore ML Model with Counterfactual Explanations

DECE supports exploratory visual analysis on ML models with counterfactual explanations. The system helps non-expert users propose, verify, and refine their hypotheses on ML predictions.

ProtoSteer: Interact with Deep Sequence Model through Prototypes

ProtoSteer: Interact with Deep Sequence Model through Prototypes

ProtoSteer enables users with little or no ML expertise to improve a deep sequence model by interacting with prototypes.
