Zoom Only



Rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have made it increasingly applicable to support human work (e.g. healthcare). However, the achievement of only accurate predictions of AI systems is not sufficient for their deployment in practice. If not carefully designed with stakeholders, AI systems can exacerbate user experience, and easily be abandoned. Instead, it is critical that these systems are designed to leverage the best of human ability, but also assist to overcome human limitations.

In this talk, I will introduce my work on creating two interactive hybrid intelligence systems that augments a machine learning model with human feedback in the context of physical stroke rehabilitation therapy: 1) human-AI collaborative decision making on rehabilitation assessment for therapists and 2) human-robot collaborative rehabilitation therapy for post-stroke survivors. Then, I will share insights from the design, development, and evaluation of collaborative systems on rehabilitation with therapists and post-stroke survivors. Finally, I will discuss emerging and future directions for my research, exploring core challenges of creating effective human-AI/robot collaborative systems.


Min Lee is a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. His research interests lie at the intersection of human-computer interaction (HCI) and machine learning (ML), where he designs, develops, and evaluates human-centered ML systems to address societal problems. His thesis focuses on creating interactive hybrid intelligence systems to improve the practices of stroke rehabilitation (e.g. a decision support system for therapists and a robotic coaching system for post-stroke survivors).
