Making Machine Learning Visual

The Strategic Futures Lab specialises in the complex interface between Machine Learning and Information Visualisation. With strong expertise in Data Mining and Human-Computer Interaction, we aim to make Machine Learning and its insights accessible to all audiences, by means of intuitive, interactive and engaging Visualisations.

With a heavy emphasis on interpretability, transparency and explainability, our research explores ways in which intelligent systems can support evidence-based and accountable strategic decision-making: roadmapping, horizon scanning, portfolio analysis, brainstorming.

The Strategic Futures Lab is based in the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland.
