Jason, 최지원

My research aims to automate data analysis and presentation to lower the barrier of data analysis tasks. This includes: 1) Mixed-initiative systems that connect data visualization and natural language captions for data presentation; 2) Automatic exploratory visual analytics system reflects user intents, data insights, and expressiveness. I'm also interested in modern web development technology.
